Wider view of the Uranian system (Annotated)

This wider view of the Uranian system with Webb’s NIRCam instrument features the planet Uranus as well as six of its 27 known moons (most of which are too small and faint to be seen in this short exposure). A handful of background objects, including many galaxies, are also seen.

[Image description: The planet Uranus is on a black background just left of centre. It is coloured light blue and displays a large, white patch on the right side as well as two bright spots and a surrounding system of nested rings oriented vertically.]
