With the exponential increase in data, the need to authenticate the integrity accuracy of the data also increases. Regarded as a mysterious law, Benford's Law has seen many use cases over the centuries ranging from detecting fraud in accounting to checking for GAN generated images. This First digit law has helped finding anomalies in various data across many domains. This paper summarizes what this mysterious law is and implements the same to asteroid data to check for the pattern. This law has the potential to handle the growing need for authenticity for the big data revolution. Further research on this field includes not only the implementation here on earth but also for the data being generated by satellites and telescopes in deep space!
