Stephan's Quintet (MIRI Image)

The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) continues to prove its worth. On July 12, NASA and the European Space Agency released the first five images from the JWST.

They include: the Carina Nebula; Stephan’s Quintet; the South Ring Nebula; WASP-96b; and SMACS 0723. The Carina Nebula is a young star-forming region located about 7,600 light-years away.

Stephan’s Quintet is a group of five galaxies: four interact with each other. All four are about 290 million light-years away, and the fifth is about 40 million light-years from Earth.

The South Ring Nebula is the remnant of an exploded star and is about 2,500 light-years from Earth.
