This image is the result of the substraction between one image taken on March 5.24 and one other taken on March 4.25. Bright areas are seen at the outer edges of the Z features. It is the demonstration that the dust flow expands from the nucleus. The nucleus can be seen by the two perpendicular small bars. The scale of 1 arc min is the vertical bar on the left. North is down. Image taken with the infrared camera (MOICAM) on the Telescope Bernard Lyot.
