The James Webb Space Telescope captures Neptunes rings #shorts

Most striking about Webbs new image is the crisp view of the planets dynamic rings some of which havent been seen at all, let alone with this clarity, since the Voyager 2 flyby in 1989. In addition to several bright narrow rings, the Webb images clearly show Neptunes fainter dust bands. Webbs extremely stable and precise image quality also permits these very faint rings to be detected so close to Neptune.
