18th magnitude Comet 67P and the fantastic European Space Agency Rosetta Mission / Philae Lander passing between two 10th magnitude galaxies, spiral M66 and edge-on NGC 3628. The 2 layered images have different brightness and contrast in an attempt to show comet and galaxies as best as possible given how faint the comet is compared to the galaxies. The comet does have a 0.1 degree tail below the coma.
