Webb and Hubble Collaborate to Reveal New Details of the Phantom Galaxy

This summer, the James Webb Space Telescope took a look at several galaxies using its Mid-Infrared Instrument (MIRI). Shortly afterward, Webb took some up-close views of M74, known as the Phantom Galaxy. This deep dive into the galaxy also involved using data from the Hubble Space Telescope, showcasing the combined capabilities of these two space observatories.
