An image from the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) reveals stunning details of the Cartwheel Galaxy.
NASA released the image and said it offers new details about star formation and the galaxy's central black hole.
The image you see right now is of the Cartwheel Galaxy, which is located in the constellation of Sculptor, about 500 million light-years away.
At its core: hot dust and star clusters, and because of the colourful inner and outer rings expanding from the center, astronomers call this a "ring galaxy."
This lens can see wavelengths of light that can reveal even more stars, and the Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCam) imaging system takes pictures between 0.6 and 5 microns in the near-infrared spectrum.
As seen in this image, the Mid-Infrared Instrument (MIRI) at the Spitzer Space Telescope shows a group of galaxies, including a large Cartwheel-shaped galaxy.
NASA said. "While Webb gives us a snapshot of the current state of the Cartwheel, it also provides insight into what happened to this galaxy in the past and how it will evolve in the future."
