Well, at this stage they are

Well, at this stage they are three smudges because they're at the limit of resolution of the JWST, and the images are also consistent with extended bodies as well as point sources.

Cheers, Mike.

Hallo! I should have

Hallo!

I should have placed a question mark within brackets at the end of the title.

Probably they will spend 10 to 40 times more observation time on this object, to clear this by spectroscopy.

Furthermore, we can hope for the ELT at the end of this century, which will have about the same sensitivity as JWST but with 8 times better resolution for localization. - If they hopefully reach specifications! -

Kind regards and happy crunching
