Can YOU spot the Cartwheel Galaxy? NASA releases incredible video zooming through space to reveal James Webb’s image of a galaxy and its central black hole 500 million light-years away from Earth


Travelling 500 million light-years in just a matter of seconds, this incredible new video zooms through space to reveal the spectacular Cartwheel Galaxy as captured by the James Webb telescope.
The $10 billion (£7.4 billion) observatory’s powerful infrared gaze produced a rare sight of the Cartwheel and two smaller companion galaxies against a backdrop of many other galaxies.
Scientists say the detailed view will provide new details about star formation and the galaxy’s central black hole.
Its appearance, much like that of the wheel of a wagon, is the result of an intense event — a high-speed collision between a large spiral galaxy and a smaller galaxy not visible in this image or video.
Other telescopes, including the Hubble Space Telescope, have previously examined the Cartwheel, which sits in the Sculptor constellation.
But the dramatic galaxy has been shrouded in mystery, perhaps literally, given the amount of dust that obscures the view.

James Webb’s image and NASA’s associated video also provide a new view of how the Cartwheel Galaxy has changed over billions of years.
‘This image of the Cartwheel and its companion galaxies is a composite from Webb’s Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCam) and Mid-Infrared Instrument (MIRI), which reveals details that are difficult to see in the individual images alone,’ NASA said.
‘Webb’s observations capture Cartwheel in a very transitory stage.
‘The form that the Cartwheel Galaxy will eventually take, given these two competing forces, is still a mystery.
‘However, this snapshot provides perspective on what happened to the galaxy in the past and what it will do in the future.’
