The James Webb Space Telescope, which will soon succeed Hubble, has captured some stunning images of a neighbouring satellite galaxy of our Milky Way.

JWST primary mirror is made up of 18 hexagonal gold-plated beryllium mirror segments that together form a 6.5-meter (21-foot) diameter mirror, compared to Hubble's 2.4 m. (7.9 ft).

This telescope has a light-collecting area of around 25 square metres, which is roughly 6 times that of Hubble Telescope.

JWST has captured some stunning images of a neighboring satellite galaxy of our Milky Way.

According to NASA, the new visuals feature the small satellite galaxy of the Milky Way.

The Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC)- and the quality of Webb's images far outweighs that of the now-retired Spitzer telescope.

The new images are taken by the JWST's MIRI (Mid Infrared Instrument), that features light from polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.

The Webb telescope has larger primary mirror than Spitzer Space Telescope and improved detectors to see the infrared sky with even more clarity.
