The James Webb Space Telescope image shows spiral galaxy in stunning detail


A newly released image from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope shows a crowded field of galaxies and stars, with a distant spiral galaxy standing out in stunning detail. 

The large galaxy that sits at the bottom of the image, LEDA 2046648, is so clear in the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST or Webb) image that its individual spiral arms are visible. This level of detail is even more impressive considering that the galaxy in question, which is in the constellation of Hercules, is more than 1 billion light-years away from Earth and JWST.
