James Webb has done it again, capturing a nearly perfect Einstein circle about 12 billion years away.

We can't stop looking at it. The coloured image was posted by an astronomy graduate student, Spaceguy44, on Reddit to be included in the upcoming slides.

As Spaceguy44 explained on Reddit Spaceguy44 on Reddit, an Einstein Ring is formed if a distant galaxy

Is magnified and twisted into a nearly perfect ring, the massive galaxy directly ahead of it. 

The galaxy is known as SPT-S J041839-4751.8, 12 billion light years away.

According to Spaceguy44, we wouldn't be able to see this galaxy at all if it wasn't for the Einstein ring.
