NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has captured a formation of galaxies Which looks like a smiling face, said the US space agency.
On Saturdayit posted an image on its own Instagram handle that showed two yellow orbs above an arc of light – painting a smiley face inside distance.
Asking its followers to obtain the face, NASA clarified that utilizing unprecedented resolution of the Hubble’s camera that it was able to locate and study areas of star formation.
The arc of light is a galaxy whose silhouette was twisted and stretched because of passing a massive gravity supply, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
“The reduced, arc-shaped galaxy has the characteristic shape of a galaxy that’s been gravitationally lensed – its light has passed close to a gigantic object en route to people, causing it to become twisted and stretched out of shape,” explained NASA.
The smiling face is located in the galaxy cluster SDSS J0952+3434, and has been taken with the Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3).
The Hubble telescope returned to regular operations on October 26 after successfully recovering a backup gyroscope replacing a failed in October.
Originally set to last 15 years, Hubble has now been in action making scientific discoveries for more than 28 decades.
