‘Phantom Galaxy’ revealed by James Webb Space Telescope, Hubble

A sequence of videos compares the views of the spectacular Phantom Galaxy, also known as M74, captured by the James Webb Space Telescope and its predecessor Hubble.

While the 32-year-old Hubble Space Telescope captures the universe mostly in the visible light spectrum, revealing the distribution of stars in the galaxy, Webb focuses on the infrared spectrum, spotting heat-emitting gas and dust that accumulates in the galaxy’s spiral arms.
