New pictures from the James Webb Telescope reveal a rare cartwheel galaxy.
Scientists say the galaxy is located about 500 million light years away.
The appearance of the galaxy looks a lot like a wagon wheel and is the result of a collision between two galaxies.
Scientists say the galaxy is in a very transitory phase of its development, and it was likely a spiral galaxy much like our own Milky Way before it collided with a smaller galaxy.
The new image gives scientists a glimpse into what happened to the galaxy in the past, and how it will evolve in the future.
