Double take: Do you see a face or a hand? When this image from nasachandraxray of PSR B1509-58 – a spinning neutron star surrounded by a cloud of energetic particles about 17,000 light-years from Earth – was released in 2009, it created a ton of hype because people saw a hand-like shape in the X-ray emission. Pareidolia vibes were strong. X-rays from Chandra in gold are seen along with infrared data from NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) telescope in red, green and blue. Pareidolia struck again as others reported seeing a shape of a face in WISE's infrared data. So... can you help us settle the debate? what do YOU see? Vote using the "✋" or "🙂" in the comments below!

In 2020, the world's most powerful space telescope unfurled its primary mirror, went through a full launch simulation, stretched out its 5-layer sunshield and more. Look back on NASAWebb's biggest accomplishments of 2020 at the link in our bio, and get ready for launch this year! Image Credits: NASA/Chris Gunn #nasawebb #nasa #space #engineering #jwst
