#Southern Ring Nebula | Dimmer star in Nebula seen cloaked in dust | Webb Telescope


#Galaxy cluster SMACS 0723 | Galaxy objects are blue and lack spikes | Galaxies contain stars, but very little dust | Their stars are older – there is less gas and dust available to condense to form new stars | It also means their stars are aging | Webb Telescope
