The James Webb Space Telescope has provided astronomers with a glimpse into the process of planet formation in a planetary system located in the constellation Piscis Austrinus.

Using the telescope's Mid-Infrared Instrument, researchers were able to study the Fomalhaut star, which is forming planets similar to what occurred in our own solar system billions of years ago.

Although the forming planets themselves aren't visible, the researchers were able to infer their presence based on gaps in the dusty disk. The telescope revealed three concentric disks stretching a total of 14 billion miles from the star, giving astronomers a glimpse into the patterns of a planetary system.

The image could help scientists better understand the process of planet formation and the evolution of our own solar system.
