What can we see with the James Webb telescope?

Webb will be able to observe the planets at or beyond the orbit of Mars, satellites, comets, asteroids, and Kuiper belt objects. Many important molecules, ices, and minerals have strong characteristic signatures at the wavelengths Webb can observe. Webb will also monitor the weather of planets and their moons.

The James Webb Space Telescope images aren't what your eyes would see. But that makes them science, not faked. The James Webb Space Telescope delivered astounding images of the universe.

NASA's James Webb Space Telescope will change the way we see our solar system. Designed to unveil distant galaxies, Webb will also cast our stellar neighborhood in a whole new light. Up on the monitor in the James Webb Space Telescope Flight Control Room is an image of the planet Jupiter.
