The so-called "bones" of the galaxy are seen for the first time in all their glory. It is named IC 5332 and is 66,000 light-years wide, making it about one-third the size of our own Milky Way.

IC 5332 is notable for being almost perfectly face-on with respect to Earth, allowing us to admire the symmetrical sweep of its spiral arms. To capture the extraordinary image, the Webb telescope used its Mid-InfraRed Instrument, or MIRI.

It is the only Webb instrument that is sensitive to light on mid-infrared wavelengths and can only be observed by telescopes outside of Earth's atmosphere.

Another picture shows how the Hubble Space Telescope previously observed the galaxy in ultraviolet and visible light.
