Another IR View of a Spiral Galaxy

The filaments and hollow cavities in this JWST image of NGC 7496 are evidence of young stars releasing energy and clearing out the gas and dust of the interstellar medium surrounding them. In this image blue, green, and red were assigned to Webb’s MIRI data at 7.7, 10 and 11.3, and 21 microns (F770W, F1000W and F1130W, and F2100W, respectively).
