 As of April 23, 2014, the Yerkes Asteroid Group has, besides their many preliminary discoveries, two provisional discoveries!  A provisional discovery has been confirmed to be an asteroid, and can be named once more data is gained over a matter of years.  These two discoveries, 2013 TG36 and 2013 TG100, were both discovered with the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope.
