Comet 226P passed Comet C/2010 U3 over the next few days after these images were taken. Both comets were moving east and both comets were magnitude 18. The big image is a mosaic of 2 images. The insets attempt to show the comets a little better than the bigger image. The comets were 3/4 of a degree apart in this image.
