Neptune’s rings
Neptune’s rings Neptune and its rings shine in this infrared image captured by JWST and released by NASA on Sept. 21, 2022. Not since Voyager 2 flew past Neptune in 1989 have the planet’s rings been revealed in such clarity. Six small moons near the planet are visible, while Triton shines brightly to the upper-left. The icy moon reflects an average of 70 percent of sunlight that hits it. NASA, ESA, CSA, STScI. Image processing: Joseph DePasquale (STScI).
