NASA’s Webb Telescope Captures Stunning ‘Pillars of Creation’

NASA recently released stunning images of 'Pillars of Creation' on 19th Oct

The image is captured by the most powerful webb telescope - James Webb Space Telescope.

According to NASA “The three-dimensional pillars look like majestic rock formations, but are far more permeable"

These columns are made up of cool interstellar gas and dust that appear – at times – semi-transparent in near-infrared light.

The region lies about 6,500 light-years away within the Eagle Nebula, and was first captured by the Hubble telescope in 1995 and 2014.

Bright red orbs are newly-formed stars, thought to be just a few hundred thousand years old.

The latest image doesn’t show any distant galaxies, unlike other shots from the James Webb telescope
