NASA this week released spectacular images of the beginning of the universe taken by the world's largest space science telescope, the James Webb.

The first round of images gave us a breathtaking view of the cosmos, with the deepest and sharpest infrared images of the distant universe to date.

New pictures taken during the space telescope's calibration tests have now been released, giving us an unprecedented view of Jupiter, the fifth planet from the sun and the largest in the solar system.

Admirers of Jupiter will identify several familiar features of the gas giant – its rings, three of its moons: Europa, Thebes and Metis, as well as the Great Red Spot, "a storm big enough to swallow Earth". , according to NASA.

The iconic circle appears white in this image because of the way the infrared image was processed by Webb.

"Combined with the deep field images released a day earlier, these images of Jupiter demonstrate the full range of what Webb can observe, from the faintest and most distant observable galaxies to the planets in our cosmic backyard." that you can see with the naked eye from your actual backyard,” Bryan Holler, a scientist at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, said in a statement.

The images were taken with two different filters that highlight specific wavelengths of light.

Part of the test was to make sure the telescope could track objects that move quickly through the solar system, such as Jupiter.
