Hope you had a happy Asteroid Day. The tally so far (Jun 29):

-733268 total asteroids, 3986 comets
-16370 of thoseĀ Near-Earth Objects (NEOs), including 106 comets
-1816 of those Potentially Hazardous Asteroids (PHAs)

…and counting. The discovery rate is a few bodies per day, and increasing. This means the totals will climb much higher before eventually leveling off.
