In fact, fellow trio member M65 is near the centre right edge of this deep cosmic group portrait, with M66 just above it and to the left.But, perhaps most intriguing is the spectacular tail stretching down for about 300,000 light-years from NGC 3628's warped, edge-on disk...

The Leo Triplet Galaxies showing the Tidal Tail of NGC 3628 - these galaxies can be introduced individually as NGC 3628 (left), (bottom right), and (top right).
