Webb's first look at Neptune is certainly a stunner! We're getting the clearest view of Neptune's rings in decades. The faint, dustier bands have never been seen in the infrared like we see now. At near-infrared wavelengths, Neptune's methane gas so strongly absorbs red and infrared light that the planet is quite dark, except where high-altitude clouds are present. These methane-ice clouds are prominent as bright streaks and spots in Webb's view.
