Webb Captures a ghostly Neptune! Explaining the New James Webb Space Telescope Image

The James Webb space telescope has once again turned its powerful gaze towards our solar system, capturing an incredible image of a ghostly Neptune and its elusive, dusty rings in detail not seen for decades.

Neptune has fascinated researchers since its discovery in 1846, yet the only spacecraft to have ever visited the distant planet was NASA’s Voyager 2 during a flyby in 1989.
In the visible spectrum Neptune appears as a blue orb in front of a black background, but when we look at it in infrared many more incredible features come into view.

It’s been three decades since we last saw Neptune and its rings in this much stunning detail and clarity. So what can we see in Webb’s latest image of the ice giant Neptune?
