Have they forgotten to take the Bahtinov mask off ??   We have all done it !!

Mr Musk could tender for the job of sending a team out to remove it!

Now that would be a proper space mission!

Secondary support arms?

Yeah… three support arms = 6 spikes

There are a fainter set of spikes offset from the brightest, wonder if the spacecraft rotated during exposure?

Fantastic!... wonder if anyone out there are doing the same to us 🤔

often wondered the same. So long as they don't see us as a potential threat or future colony tho... 😉

I turned down the saturation to make it a simple B&W image.   It looks more like what we are used to seeing.

If the orange is one of the colors they are collecting it will be interesting to see what the JWST color pallet will be.

I believe the 'orange' colour is a NASA initiative to underwrite its not like Hubble. The JWST can observe over 0.6 to 28 microns, so definitely no orange there!

I think the galaxies in the background are all new discoveries, sure I read that somewhere.

Mostly they are way beyond our imaging capabilities but I am guessing someone is already trying to capture some of them.

They've just announced that Joe Biden will be unveiling one of the images this evening at 10pm BST.

It'll be on NASA TV channel and loads of other places as well I'm sure.

Edit to change time to 10pm BST
