Twin. Where have you been?
When you find someone who complements your wavelengths, nobody knows you like they do. Here’s a throwback to when Webb's infrared data was combined with ultraviolet and visible-light data from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope for a more comprehensive view of galaxy pair VV 191.
Webb’s new data traced light from the bright elliptical galaxy (left) through the winding spiral galaxy (right), allowing astronomers to investigate the effects of interstellar dust in the latter. Webb also revealed a faint red arc at the center of the left galaxy to be a very distant galaxy, magnified and warped in appearance by the gravity of the elliptical galaxy!
