Not gonna lie. I ugy-cried when I saw THE FIRST JWST NEPTUNE IMAGES! "O M G - LOOK AT THE RINGS" I was yelling, making my kids, my mom, even my cats look. More than 20 years in the making, and JWST delivered. https://t.co/48bxjAlztC pic.twitter.com/qPtiW2hyFm

If you do a Google search for “Double Asteroid Redirection Test" right now, the DART spacecraft flies in from the left and knocks the results page askew. 🛰☄️ (H/T to @belliott4488 for the alert) pic.twitter.com/y31Z0ihaH7

El profesor Tom Marsh, famosísimo astrónomo británico, se encuentra perdido en #LaSerena; lleva una semana sin ser visto. Fue visto por ultima vez en el Observatorio La Silla.

La foto de abajo es reciente --- Tom tiene 60 años de edad y mide 1.92m. Favor difundir! https://t.co/oJZVjBZ6r3

This is the full #JWST image of Neptune showing a cold, distant world suspended in a vast universe. It took some planning to make this composition! pic.twitter.com/Kq0FWYxXfP

The South Pole officially recorded sunrise at 12:47pm NZDT yesterday! The inversion was crazy with constant mirages along the horizon, which resulted in this green flash! Everyone had so much energy at the @NSF Amundsen-Scott Station yesterday ☀️ pic.twitter.com/8cuyey5QlV

Here is the AMAZING wide-field image showing Neptune in context with the night sky PACKED with galaxies (as all JWST images are). pic.twitter.com/f5cscoVzS1

Here's a zoom-in on the Neptune system with some moons and rings annotated (Triton and Proteus are outside this field). I told NASA we also see Hippocamp, but they weren't confident. As someone whose spent decades studying the Neptune system in FAR worse images, I am confident. pic.twitter.com/XHMxV9oPFL

my husband is such a killjoy, i love him.
he was interviewed by some local news reporter about Jupiter and he was all "it's like if your best friend from college, who lives 100 miles away, calls you up and says today he is only NINETY NINE miles away"

In the late 1990s, I was a young scientist at MIT, finishing up my Voyager 2 Neptune analysis grant. I also had just used the amazing Hubble to discover that Neptune's Great Dark Spot, discovered by Voyager 2 in 1989 (see picture), had disappeared!
