    Fascinating article. It is amazing that this is how some people spend their time. Now we need the pictures!

    Uranus and Neptune also have rings! Larry

    Jupiter has rings? GET OUT! Really?! Never could have imagined. Some of the above photos look like artist renderings not like photos at all. Incredible. Wouldn’t these make for a sensational planetarium presentation?

    Massive Mosaic Filled With Galaxies , see them all at https://ceers.github.io/ceers-first-images-release


    JWST has taken the first epoch of observations for our CEERS Survey and it is currently the largest image taken by the telescope to date! These data include NIRCam and MIRI imaging, covering near-infrared to mid-infrared wavelengths in the EGS field - a small patch of sky near the handle of the Big Dipper. We have produced a color image mosaic of all of our Epoch 1 data, which we share below, with several highlights and additional information. Epoch 1 covers less than half of our total survey area on the sky and already the images have led to new discoveries and an unexpected, but not unwelcome, abundance of never-before-seen galaxies. We hope you enjoy exploring these images as much as we have enjoyed studying them, and be sure to open the high-resolution ones to zoom in - the sheer number of galaxies we have captured so far is awe-inspiring!

    From https://www.extremetech.com/extreme/...-with-galaxies

    In the images, the CEERS team has identified some of the most interesting objects in Epoch 1. Here’s what makes each one notable.
    1. A spiral galaxy at a redshift of z = 0.16. The resolution of the JWST imaging reveals a large number of blue star-forming clumps and star clusters.
    2. A chance alignment of a bright galaxy at a redshift z = 1.05 with several smaller galaxies forming an arc in the sky when viewed from JWST.
    3. An interacting system of galaxies at z = 1.4, dubbed the “Space Kraken” by the CEERS team.
    4. Two interacting spiral galaxies at z = 0.7. The arrow points to a supernova discovered with these JWST images.
    5. Another spiral galaxy, also at z = 0.7, again highlighting JWST’s ability to resolve small-scale features even for modestly distant galaxies.
    6. A chance alignment of a z = 0.63 galaxy with a tidal tail, and a grouping of red galaxies at z = 1.85.
    There’s one more important feature in Epoch 1. The team reports the discovery of a galaxy, dubbed Maisie’s galaxy [image below], with a red shift of 11.8, meaning it could be one of the oldest galaxies ever detected. It may have formed just 280 million years after the Big Bang. If confirmed, it could provide clues about the earliest phases of star formation in the universe. And remember, this is less than half of the CEERS Survey. Time on the Webb telescope is tough to get. The CEERS team expects to conduct the next set of observations around the end of 2022.

    Jupiter

    In a wide-field view, Webb sees Jupiter with its faint rings, which are a million times fainter than the planet, and two tiny moons called Amalthea and Adrastea. The fuzzy spots in the lower background are likely galaxies “photobombing” this Jovian view.

    “This one image sums up the science of our Jupiter system program, which studies the dynamics and chemistry of Jupiter itself, its rings, and its satellite system,” Fouchet said. Researchers have already begun analyzing Webb data to get new science results about our solar system’s largest planet.
