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.

All MPECs

The first view is an overall view about all MPECs, discoveries and daily updates etc.

Date

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.

Observers versus Date for all MPECs
Observers vs. date: More and more observers appears each year in the MPECs.
Measurers versus Date for all MPECs
Observers vs. date: More and more measurers appears each year in the MPECs.
Stations versus Date for all MPECs
Stations vs. date: More and more stations appears each year in the MPECs.
Observations versus Date for all MPECs
Observations vs. date: More and more observations appears each year in the MPECs.
Bytes versus Date for all MPECs
Bytes vs. date: Some extraordinary big MPECs appears from time to time.
Lines versus Date for all MPECs
Lines vs. date: The number of lines in the MPECs rises too.

Discovery MPECs

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.

Date

The plots show the same tendency like for discovery MPECs, but the biggest values of big daily updates are out..

Sky

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.

Magnitude

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.
