Telescope’s first pictures give us a stunning full image of galaxy cluster

The photo on the left was captured by the Hubble Space Telescope. The image on the right was transmitted back to Earth from the new James Webb Space Telescope. We’re looking back in time at this cluster as it appeared approximately 4.6 billion years ago.That's how long it took for the light waves to travel the enormous distance separating their galaxies from our own. 

President Joe Biden unveiled a once in a lifetime image during a White House event on Monday July, 11. 

What the image showed was galaxy cluster SMACS 0723 taken by the James Webb Space Telescope. Webb’s image covers a section of the sky which is about the size of a “single grain of sand, held in a person’s hand at arm’s length by someone on the ground,” said from NASA NASA’s Webb Delivers Deepest Infrared Image of Universe Yet.
