Fragment B of comet SW-3

Image of the broken fragments surrounding Fragment B of Comet 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann 3 observed with FORS1 on ESO's VLT in four filters (B, V, R, and I). As the telescope was tracking the comet, the stars appear as coloured trails, indicating the order in which the comet was observed in the different filters. North is up and East is to the left.
