James Webb Space Telescope finds an ancient ghostly galaxy

This image of a galaxy from the early universe is hardly what you’d call dazzling. 

You are looking at a very blurry, highly dust-obscured resident of the cosmos whose name is only a string of numbers and letters. It even sits  at a distance so far from Earth that it slips in and out of the watchful eyes of various telescopes. The image, captured by the powerful James Webb Space Telescope, spotlights galaxy AzTECC71 — but what’s striking here is that we’re seeing AzTECC71the way it was just 900 million years after the Big Bang. That’s when the universe was turning on its very first stars, absolute eons before our solar system was born.
