Take a look at the Recent Activity section on the website. See the number of observations that are in the AAVSO International Database? Soon - very soon - that number will reach twenty million!
Twenty Million observations!
That's, 20,000,000, or even 2 x 107!
However you choose to write it down, its a big number.
When will we reach it? Care to predict?
