Even NASA's next-generation space observatory can't manage to see supermassive black holes directly, but that doesn't mean astronomers can't use its data to better understand the mysterious behemoths.

The opportunities are even on display in the first science-quality images from the James Webb Space Telescope (nicknamed JWST or Webb) that NASA unveiled on July 12.

Although supermassive black holes proper are invisible to all observatories that gather light, JWST will be able to observe the structures indirectly.

The NIRCam and MIRI instruments also produced "data cubes" that allowed scientists to map where in the cloud around the supermassive black hole individual chemicals are located.

Stephan's Quintet of galaxies seen in mid-infrared by the James Webb Space Telescope's MIRI, in which matter falling into the supermassive black hole in the topmost galaxy shines particularly brightly.

681 views Jul 12, 2022 This video features Webb’s view of Stephan’s Quintet, a visual grouping of five galaxies, as seen by the MIRI instrument.

This enormous mosaic of Stephan’s Quintet is the largest image to date from the NASA/ESA/CSA James Webb Space Telescope, covering about one-fifth of the Moon’s diameter.
