NASA/ESA/CSA's James Webb Telescope recently captured an unforgettable image of the Cartwheel galaxy with the help of NIRCAM and MIRI instruments.

Cartwheel was formed more than 400 million years ago as a result of a high-speed collision.

As can be seen in the image, the galaxy is composed of two rings, the bright inner one and the colored outer one.

Despite the impact, the remnants of the large galaxy that once existed, including the rotating arms, can also be seen in this stunning image.

The red streaks that can be seen between the outer and inner rings can also be seen in the dwarf spiral galaxy on the left side of the image, according to the ESA.

These streaks are caused by shiny dust, rich in hydrocarbons, says the space agency.

This image from James Webb will not be forgotten, being extraordinary, but we hope that there will be room for even better images than that.
