Rather interesting that this shows the dying star, which had only been inferred before. The companion star washes it out in the optical spectrum.

Clear binary star separation from 2,500LY away.

I just looked at a Hubble vs Webb comparison for the first time. My first thought is that the Hubble is still astoundingly good. And I don't know what words to use for Webb.

The Nebula is cool, but that wide view of all those galaxies has been blowing my mind.

If we were ST:TNG capable of space travel, right this very minute, we couldn't explore all that in 40,000 years or more.

Absolutely astonishing.

And to add, that's just a tiny speck.

/good thing I don't smoke dope anymore, I'd be useless for the next week or two thinking about it. 😀
