30 Years of Asteroid Discoveries Animated

This is interesting video animation recording Asteroid Discovery From 1980 - 2010, over the last 30 years. Not only does it show the orbits of the asteroids in relation to the inner planets, it highlights them over time as they were identified and colors them according to how close to Earth their orbited.

The only visual inaccuracy is the size of the asteroids as it wasn't possible to make some asteroids smaller than one pixel.
