The James Webb Space Telescope has recently given us an amazing image of Saturn, the famous ringed planet of our solar system. The picture goes beyond our wildest dreams, showing off Saturn's beautiful rings in a new light. With this, Webb has captured its first images of all the four gas giants of the solar system, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.

But unlike the striking pictures taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, where Saturn is often shown with bright bands of clouds, this new image from Webb paints a different picture. Saturn appears as a dark circle colored in shades of warm orange and brown, which is quite unusual. Why is it so different?

The video explains the first image of Saturn by JWST in detail.
