30 years of asteroid discoveries 1980 - 2010

View of the solar system showing the locations of all asteroids discovered since 1980. As asteroids are discovered they are added to the map and highlighted white so you can pick out the new ones. Earth crossers are red. Earth approachers (perihelion less than 1.3AU) are yellow. All others are green. Video created by Scott Manley. More description: http://tiny.cc/oys4q
