Polarimetric Observations of Fragment B of Comet SW3 in June 2006 A sub-fragment is present on the left, suward, side

Upper image is intensity map

Middle image is a linear polarimetric map. Black correspond to 10% and white to 30%. Max polarization is 26%.

Middle image is a circular polarimetric map. Black correspond to -1% and white to 1%. No circular polarization greater than 0.2% is present
