James Webb Space Telescope captures images of Uranus and its moons

Infrared images reveal dramatic rings and a dynamic atmosphere

Rings were previously only seen by Voyager 2 and Keck Observatory

Uranus rotates on its side causing extreme seasons

Telescope observed Uranus for 12 minutes to capture images

Near-Infrared Camera combined data from two filters to capture images

Images reveal a polar cap unique to Uranus and bright clouds

Webb image shows 11 of Uranus' 13 known rings

Six brightest moons are visible in the image

Additional studies of Uranus are planned in Webb's first year of science operations

The European Space Agency said, "It is just the tip of the iceberg of what Webb can do when observing this mysterious planet
