The James Webb telescope captured a stunning image of the 'fingerprint' that forms when 2 stars come close to each other in orbit
NASA's James Webb Space Telescope has identified a new, wonderful sight - a cosmic fingerprint spreading out from a point of contact between two distant stars.
NASA says the rings form every eight years when the two stars circle close enough.
Stars' stellar winds compress and transform into dust, forming rings.
NASA called the "celestial dance" between two stars and the wave-like rings from their almost-contact point.
James Webb, a million kilometres from Earth, is circling the sun to survey distant galaxies.
The telescope photographed the Orion Nebula, a 1,350-light-year-away star nursery, in September.
