Smiley Face in Deep Space Captured by Hubble Telescope

Cheese! A star cluster in a distant reaches of outdoor space looks like a smiley face in this print held by NASA/ESA’s Hubble Space Telescope.

The dual orange eyes and white symbol nose are indeed really splendid galaxies and a grin arc is combined by an outcome famous as gravitational lensing, according to a matter on NASA’s website.

Galaxy clusters, a many large structures in a universe, strive such a absolute gravitational lift that they diverge space-time and a light entrance from behind them, that combined a arc of light that forms a smile, NASA said.

The star cluster SDSS J1038+4849 in a print was complicated by Hubble’s Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) and Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3), according to NASA.

A chronicle of a picture was entered into a Hubble’s Hidden Treasures picture estimate foe by competitor Judy Schmidt, NASA said.
