Share Your Desktop – July 2022

So, let me be perfectly clear – I DID NOT TAKE THIS PHOTO.

🀣 🀣 🀣

But NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope did!

OMG 😱

It’s awe-inspiring, mind-boggling, beautiful, incredible, astounding – I could go on for hours because there are copious words I could use to describe this breathtaking image.

It looks wonderful on my desktop and I’ll relish looking at this portion of the universe for the next 31 days. (Actually, I changed my desktop image two days ago.)

This is the first publicly released image.

Actually, I’m lost for words. Click here to read more about it.

The other images that have been released are here.

Celebrating the deepest photo of the universe ever taken!

(Shhh – Don’t tell Google I borrowed their Doodle.)

What an incredible day/week for space exploration.


Here’s a late update added just before publishing this post:

Our ABC* Science has a wonderful article on the ABC News website that takes a tour through the James Webb Space Telescope images.

The Beauty of the Detail

And you can find (an incredible) comparison between the James Webb Space Telescope images and those taken by the Hubble Telescope here.

  1. I never change my desktop but now you have me thinking that I really should! I just downloaded an app called Sky Tonight. It is $0.99 a month. You hold your phone up to the night sky and it shows you the name of whatever is in your camera view. I have seen Jupiter and Mars!
