Comet C/2023 P1 (Nishimura) imaged on August 28, 2023, during the morning twilight in a wide-field image spanning three degrees between constellations Gemini and Cancer. It is seen in conjunction with comet 29P/Schwassmann-Wachmann, appearing as a small cloud beneath the long ion tail of Nishimura, revealing structural details in the form of various clusters being swept by the solar wind.
