On 14 September 2022 Live Science reported:
NASA's James Webb Space Telescope has snapped a perfect shot of an 'Einstein ring.' The stunning halo is the result of light from a distant galaxy passing through warped space-time surrounding another galaxy aligned between the distant light source and Earth. Reddit user and astronomy grad student 'Spaceguy44' posted the image of the JOS18 Einstein ring August 23 ... The anonymous astronomer created the shot using publicly available data collected by the Mid-Infrared Instrument (MIRI) on the James Webb Space Telescope.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
... NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has captured images of several other Einstein rings, including one formed from warped quasar light. However, none of these Einstein rings was as complete or as clearly visible as the one in the new image.
Perfectly-circular Einstein rings are extremely rare because they require both the distant and foreground galaxies to be perfectly aligned with the observer. However, the more advanced sensors on Webb should make it easier to spot them in the future.
