Just a short update on the graph above and all the associate data: It looks like we have already (as of now) broken the above record from last year by quite a margin in 2020, and we still have two months to go for this year! And that's despite the Covid-Nonsense probably having significantly decreased the observership capabilities this year with observatories being shut down and such. I'll update all the data next year. Stay tuned!
It's been a crazy year both on planet and off.
The new data is available now. I have decided to leave the old database from last year exactly as it was (everyone can still go in there too and have a look) and create a complete new one for this year instead (went through everything again, corrected small errors, double-checked, added new data etc). One reason for that is to have a record of possible changes over the years that have been made in the official databases. That might be useful at some point to see which objects/trends have been added/deleted/changed and why. It might even give us a clue (if we assume there might be some hiding going on because they know of dangerous objects or trends that the public shouldn't know about) if there is some trickery of the numbers/objects/trends involved. So far it doesn't look like it to me though. It could also give us other clues.
Anyway, in the following posts the new database and data will be presented.
