The Webb Telescope has captured a pair of merging galaxies.

The coming together of two galaxies is the interaction, in which the two galaxies merge into each other, during which their collision ignites a frenzied stream in the form of a starburst, the same two galaxies have been observed by the Webb Telescope,which is known as IC 1623.  Located in the constellation Cetus, about 270 million light-years from Earth, these two galaxies are colliding head-on into each other in a process known as merging, igniting a frenzied stream of star formation,which is producing new stars at a rate more than twenty times that of a galaxy.

The merger of these two galaxies has been a long-standing one, previously imaged by Hubble and other space telescopes, but extreme star bursts have produced intense infrared emissions, causing dust to obstruct the vision of Hubble and other telescopes. Infrared wavelengths are particularly bright in these systems of galaxies, and Webb has been able to study these bright galaxies, and Webb’s infrared sensitivity allows us to see dust at wavelengths before.

The luminous core of the Milky Way merger turns out to be very bright and highly compact, this diffraction spike is visible above the Milky Way in Webb’s image, Webb’s physical structure created 8-pointed, snowflake-like diffraction by the interaction of starlight. Spikes are made.  Astronomers have captured the infrared portions of IC 1623’s electromagnetic spectrum with the help of Webb’s state-of-the-art instruments MIRI, NIRSpec, and NIRCam, during which time astronomers have obtained abundant data, allowing astronomers to figure out a large scale, How the galactic ecosystem can be understood by the web.
