Three temporal maps of the bright stria in C/2002 V1's dust tail as seen by LASCO C3.

The tail is shown from 2003 February 18th at 07:54 UT until February 19th 04:54 UT. Dust is displayed from the region of 0.2 < βr < 2.5 with ejection times from 2003 February 16th 18:00 UT through to February 17th 18:00 UT.
