James Webb Captures Amazing “Ghost Galaxy” Image

James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has a . captured a stunning image of Galaxy Called “Phantom Galaxy” or Ghost Galaxy. This galaxy looks like a wormhole.

This image was recorded by Judy Schmidt, based on JWST data collected using the Mid-infrared Instrument (MIRI) about a million miles from our planet.

“I’ve been doing this for 10 years, and (JWST) data is new, different and exciting. Of course I’m going to build something with it,” Schmidt said. Space.com.

The image highlights a trail of dust in the galaxy, known as NGC 628 or Messier 74. Dubbed the “Perfect Spiral” by some astronomers because the Milky Way is so symmetrical, the Ghost Galaxy is of scientific interest because it belongs to the intermediate mass range. Scientists believe a black hole is hidden at its heart.

Galaxies have been photographed professionally many times before, including by space observatories such as the Hubble Space Telescope and the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE). What sets Webb’s image apart from previous efforts is the infrared range, the center of which highlights cosmic dust alongside the unique 18-segment hexagonal mirror powering and intergalactic space.

Webb spotted M74 earlier this week. The data was also shared on Twitter by Gabriel Brammer, an astronomer at the Cosmic Dawn Center at the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Denmark.

JWST was busy releasing its first operational images of a space object on July 12, including views of nebulae and very young galaxies. Later on July 14, pictures of an infrared view of Jupiter were released with the Moon and its ring of gas giants.

For Ghost Galaxy, Schmidt uses Photoshop and Fits Liberator for most of his work and says the site has plenty of imaging tutorial videos. channel youtubeThis is to help take advantage of today’s more sophisticated software.
