Sunward-aligned temporal maps of C/2011 L4's main dust tail region as seen by HI-1B with coarse-scale difference enhancement.

Two points of note in the tail are points P (βr = 1.7 and te = 2013-03-08 04:50 UT); shown in purple, and point G (βr = 0.8 and te = 2013-03-05 12:00 UT); shown in green.

A new combed stria feature appeared to form at point P over the course of 14th March 2013.
