Astronomers have used NASA‘s James Webb Space Telescope for the very first time to take a direct image of a planet outside the solar system. The exoplanet is called as HIP 65426 b. This is a gas giant. This has no rocky surface. The exoplanet could not be habitable.

The exoplanet is young. Compared to the 4.5-billion-year-old Earth, this exoplanet is about 15 to 20 million years old.

The image is seen through four different light filters. This shows Webb’s powerful infrared gaze. This can easily capture worlds beyond the solar system.
