Pillars are dense clouds of hydrogen and dust.

It’s a classic, one of the most beautiful sights in the universe, and now the James Webb Space Telescope has revisited it..

The so-called “Pillars of Creation” are dense clouds of hydrogen and dust in the Serpentine constellation, 6,500 light-years from Earth.

All major telescopes have captured this scene, with the most famous images from the Hubble Observatory in 1995 and 2014.

James Webb offers us another incredible perspective.
