According to their website, NASA shares the deepest and sharpest infrared image of the distant universe to date. NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope produced a fantastic image, and they are excited about it. According to NASA, it is known as Webb’s First Deep Field.
The type of things that appeared in Webb’s view for the first time would be things NASA usually wouldn’t be able to see. But, in Webb’s view, it picked up on thousands of galaxies.
According to NASA, “this only covers a patch of sky approximately the size of a grain of sand held at arm’s length by someone on the ground.”
The camera that NASA’s Webb used to get the incredible image is the Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCAM). The image is the galaxy cluster SMACS 0723, as it appeared 4.6 billion years ago. This image is the telescope’s first-full color image. (Image credit: NASA, ESA, CSA, and STScl
