NASA has released a second image of the famous ‘Pillars of Creation’ taken by the new James Webb Telescope.

This week the MIRI (Webb’s Mid-Infrared Instrument) instrument gave us a glimpse of an active star-forming region.

The observatory’s near-infrared camera captured the spot, about 6,500 light-years from Earth, last week.

These pillars are located in the center of what astronomers call Messier 16, or the Eagle Nebula.
