President Biden will reveal the first full-color image from the Webb Space Telescope at the White House today at 5:30 p.m. ET. The much-anticipated release of the rest of the images remains scheduled for 10:30 a.m. ET tomorrow

PBS Newshour is covering it live

Still appears to be waiting to start, it is almost 6PM ET at that moment...

Here’s the first one:



Not quite sure what we’re lookin at - looks like some Einstein-ring-ing goin on there around the middle thing-y.

There's some major gravitational lensy-type stuff happening there!

This is one of the most beautiful images I have ever seen. Congratulations to all that worked in this project.

Including the person who paints in the color since everything in the pic is shades of gray.

How do you figure that?

This is a multi-wavelength image so in fact the image is taken in multiple colors.

from the image notes (emphasis mine):

"This deep field, taken by Webb’s Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCam), is a composite made from images at different wavelengths, totaling 12.5 hours – achieving depths at infrared wavelengths beyond the Hubble Space Telescope’s deepest fields, which took weeks."

A large number of those are galaxies, not stars.

once more, the universe humbles.

This is the mind-blowing part:

Why do some of the galaxies seem stretched in a concentric circle, and others not?

There are various explanations for some of the shapes of galaxies. Some are two galaxies merging. Some evidence indicates spiral galaxies such as the Milky Way have a central black hole causing the shape.

If I understood correctly (a big IF), that is because the gravitational field of the nearer galaxies is actually bending the light of the more distant galaxies as a magnifying glass would.

"The image depicts a massive group of galaxy clusters that act as a magnifying glass for the objects behind them. Called gravitational lensing, this will create Webb's first deep field view of incredibly old and distant, faint galaxies." - CNN

Sure puts our puny little lives in perspective doesn't it?
