a collection of galaxies forms most of the image and there are three pullout images at right of different galaxies in a close up view

New James Webb Space Telescope photos show huge light-bending galaxy cluster

In a dance of dark matter, NASA’s Deep Space Observatory captured light being bent in the distant universe.

The James Webb Space Telescope’s massive mirror has used the gravity of a cluster of galaxies to peek at a known galaxy far behind, but there’s a twist: New research published Wednesday (October 26) suggests Webb may see two galaxies and not one. (The region has already been photographed by the Hubble Space Telescope, but this new view is sharper than ever.)
