It's orbiting in the bowl of the Big Dipper, from the perspective of Earth.

A new image captures NASA's distant James Webb Space Telescope in a sky full of stars.

The Rome-based Virtual Telescope Project took the exposure over five minutes using its robotic telescope, a PlaneWave 17-inch, tracking Webb on a Paramount ME mount.

The image captured Webb just as it was arriving at its destination at the Earth-sun Lagrange Point 2 (L2), which is about 930,000 miles (1.5 million kilometers) away from our planet, project manager Gianluca Masi said in a statement.

The full image shows NASA's James Webb Space Telescope as a tiny speck among a sea of background stars.

The stars appear smudged because the telescope was tracking the motion of JWST, which appears as a small white speck.
