This image of P/2003 O3 was taken 6 days after perihelion passage when
it was only 19° from the last quarter moon and is at the same scale as all
the other P/2003 O3 images. The tail seems more prominent even though the
total exposure of 9 minutes is less than images c) and d).
comet was at opposition, three months past perihelion, but receding from both Sun and
Earth and fading fast when this image was obtained in mid November 2003.
