What Caused This Smiley In Space? NASA Explains

Just below centre is a formation of galaxies akin to a smiling face. 'Two yellow-hued blobs hang atop a sweeping arc of light. Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field Camera 3 is capable of seeing distant galaxies in unparalleled resolution, yet, high enough to locate and study regions where new stars are forming.

The arc of light is a galaxy whose shape has been distorted and stretched as a result of passing a massive gravity source, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Scientists say that "smiling mouth" in the photo turned out with the light from the galaxy, which passed by a massive object, causing distorted.

The powerful telescope captured this image in an effort to understand how new stars spring to life throughout the cosmos.

The Hubble Space telescope has spotted a formation of galaxies that resembles a smiling face in the sky.

As per NASA, stars take birth within a giant cloud of gas which they call stellar nurseries. So, it was discovered the most distant from the Earth a single star, which is located at a distance of nine billion light-years.

Launched in 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope has made more than 1.3 million observations of stars, galaxies, black holes and other celestial targets, including some that are more than 13 billion light-years away.

Recently, using the data collected by Hubble and Kepler telescope, a team of researchers at the Columbia University found the evidence of the first moon outside the solar system.

It is named after famed astronomer Edwin Hubble who was born in Missouri in 1889.
