The James Webb Space Telescope has caught a glimpse of the most distant star known in the universe, which had been announced by scientists using Webb's predecessor the Hubble Space Telescope only a few months ago.

The star, named Earendel, after a character in J.R.R. Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" prequel "The Silmarillion," was discovered thanks to gravitational lensing in a Hubble Space Telescope deep field image.

The star, whose light took 12.9 billion light-years to reach Earth, is so faint that it might be rather challenging to find it in the new James Webb Space Telescope image, which was released on Twitter on Tuesday (Aug. 2) by a group of astronomers using the account Cosmic Spring JWST.

Earendel, the most distant known star in the universe, was discovered by the Hubble Space Telescope earlier this year, but now the James Webb Space Telescope has glimpsed it too.

The original Hubble image provides some guidance as to where to look through the zoomed-in cut-out.

Essentially, Earendel, is the tiny whitish dot below a cluster of distant galaxies.

By comparing the Hubble image with that captured by Webb, you can find the elusive Earendel.
