  • The following table lists (in reverse chronological order) the number of numbered minor planets discovered in each year. Note that this is not the same as the number of objects given permanent numbers in a given year (see here for a tally of the total number of numbered minor planets after each batch of MPCs from 1995).

    This list was last updated on 2014 Apr. 16.
