Some other stuff
The MPECs are not complete for all observations and discoveries, but it makes fun, to play with the data. So I presents some nice graphics.
The first view is an overall view about all MPECs, discoveries and daily updates etc.
The plots versus date shows the development over time. There are more observatzions, more observers, more stations and also more discoverers and measurers each year.
The second view is an overall view about all discover MPECs without daily updates etc.
You can download the anonymized used discovery lines, without object and station code due to copyright from MPC.
The plots show the same tendency like for discovery MPECs, but the biggest values of big daily updates are out..
The disctribution of all discovery positions (marked with an asterisk) shows the ecliptic, the gaps of the Milkyway and a distribution right to the poles.
The development of the Mag distribution for a discovery show an increase of about 0.1 magnitudes for each year. But there are objects at 18th magnitude or lower all the time.
