Mysterious rings in new Webb image puzzle astronomers

Date:

The James Webb Space Telescope captured mysterious concentric rings around a distant star that astronomers are still trying to explain.

The photo, taken in July, was released on Twitter by citizen scientist Judy Schmidt, sparking a flurry of comments and headaches. It shows a star known as WR140 surrounded by regular wrinkle-like circles that gradually fade. However, the circles are not perfectly round, but feel somewhat square, prompting speculation about possible alien origins.
