Jupiter’s auroras look radiant in James Webb Space Telescope images

The James Webb Space Telescope has only been operating for several weeks, but it’s already impressed with its early observations. 

The newest release from the James Webb Space Telescope team is a pair of highly detailed images of Jupiter that show its auroras around the poles. Both images are composites, meaning they combine multiple images taken with the telescope’s Near Infrared Camera (NIRCam) — each using a different filter — into a single, high-definition image.
