Mysterious rings in new Webb image puzzle astronomers

The James Webb Space Telescope captured mysterious concentric rings around a distant star that astronomers are still working to explain. 

The image, taken in July, was released on Twitter by citizen scientist Judy Schmidt, prompting a torrent of comments and head-scratching. It shows a star known as WR140 surrounded by regular ripple-like circles that gradually fade away. The circles, however, are not perfectly round, but have a somewhat square-like feel to them, prompting speculations about possible alien origins.
