The images above are released by the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) team aren’t officially ‘first light’ images from the new telescope, but in a way, it feels like they are. These stunning views provide the initial indications of just how powerful JWST will be, and just how much infrared astronomy is about to improve.

The images were released following the completion of the long process to fully focus the telescope’s mirror segments. Engineers are saying JWST’s optical performance is “better than the most optimistic predictions,” and astronomers are beside themselves with excitement.

The astronomers and engineers actually seem astounded how good JWST’s resolution is turning out to be. The first official image of JWST will be released on July 12.
