NASA pulls the curtain back to the first full-color image of the Webb Space Telescope

NASA’s Webb Telescope first revealed a dust cloak around the second star, shown in red on the left, in the center of the South Ring Nebula. It is a hot and dark white dwarf. Webb captured this scene, released on July 12th, in mid-infrared. Most of them can only be observed from space. Mid-infrared rays help researchers detect dust-covered objects, such as red stars. This Mid-Infrared Device (MIRI) image provides incredible details, such as a cache of distant galaxies in the background. Most of the colorful spots of light are galaxies, not stars. The small triangles show the circular ends of the stars, including the blue ones at the bottom red end of the nebula, but the galaxy looks like a malformed circle, straight line, or spiral.
