Here’s that galaxy again, as seen just through Webb’s MIRI instrument. While Webb’s NIRCam reveals previously unseen young stars, MIRI reveals regions rich in hydrocarbons and chemical compounds, such as silicate dust — similar to dust on Earth!

Believe it or not, this galaxy was probably your average spiral galaxy before it collided with a smaller galaxy over 400 million years ago. Now, it’s made up of 2 rings — a bright inner ring and a surrounding, colorful ring. Both expand outwards from the center like pond ripples.
