James Webb Space Telescope Spots Faint ‘PEARLS’ Galaxy

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope continues to amaze, this time with an exquisite image revealing never-before-seen galaxies in an area known as the northern ecliptic pole.

The image is one of the few medium-depth wide-field images of our cosmos and shows thousands of galaxies over a bewildering range of distances, stretching to the edges of the universe, while being dotted with stars of our own Milky Way. New James Webb Space Telescope (Webb or JWST), which comes from the Prime Extragalactic Areas for Reionization and Lensing Science (PEARLS) program, also highlights a number of interacting galaxies.
