NASA has once again shared stunning images captured by the James Webb Space Telescope. This time it is again about the “Pillars of Creation”.

They may look more like ghosts or ghosts, but they are actually large clouds of gas and dust in which new stars are born. The Pillars of Creation They were once photographed eight years ago by the older Hubble Space Telescope, but the newer James Webb Telescope now allows us to study those “pillars” in greater detail.

Shared last week The European Space Agency (ESA) already has the first image of the “pillars of creation”. Thanks to the new telescope’s infrared camera, there were more stars visible and the difference between new and older stars was more clear.

Now, the US counterpart is once again sharing an image of those clouds, and we get a view of the active star-forming region through the telescope’s mid-infrared (MIRI) instrument.
