NASA’s James Webb Telescope shared a mesmerizing photo of Jupiter in the darkness of space.
NASA James Webb Space Telescope just started working in space a few weeks ago and in this short time the most powerful telescope in the universe has not missed an opportunity to surprise us. A few days ago, the James Webb telescope saw the oldest galaxy, and now the new NASA telescope has been studying the planets in our own solar system. And now NASA has released the latest James Webb Telescope image – a mesmerizing Jupiter.
Earlier, NASA released a handful of early images of Jupiter captured by the telescope on July 14. But the telescope has continued to revisit the planet to share more raw images showing the largest planet in the solar system glowing in the darkness of deep space. The raw new black-and-white image of Jupiter was captured on July 27 by the telescope’s Near Infrared Camera (NIRCam) instrument, highlighting the planet’s unique features.
James Webb telescope captures Jupiter
The new shared image of Jupiter by the James Webb Telescope highlights the planet’s massive storm, the Great Red Spot, as well as bands in the planet’s atmosphere. The image and observations noted by the NASA telescope are designed to help scientists understand the planet’s atmosphere and thermal structure and layers to study phenomena such as wind and aurorae.
According to the Space.com report, the photo is the result of Webb’s NIRCam focused on Jupiter for nearly 11 minutes while using the F212N filter, which detects light at a wavelength of 2.12 microns, most of its length. an ordinary bacteria. The report further stated that based on the tentative schedule of the James Webb Telescope operator, the Space Telescope Science Institute, the NASA telescope will target Jupiter’s volcanic moon Io, the large asteroid Hygeia and the supernova remnants next week. Cassiopeia A. That means, you can expect more stunning images from the depths of space in the near future.
