Hubble Spots 'Smiling Face' While Looking For New Stars

What Caused This Smiley In Space? NASA Explains

Hubble has the pointing accuracy of.007 arc seconds, which is like being able to shine a laser beam focused on Franklin D. Roosevelt's head on a dime roughly 200 miles away.

Hubble Space Telescope returned to normal operations on October 26 after successfully recovering a backup gyroscope that had replaced a failed one three weeks earlier.

This effect is distorted light is called "gravitational lensing".

The photo, published by NASA on its website and social media channels, shows two yellow-hued orbs of lights just a little below the middle.

It seems Halloween is not over for the galaxy as NASA's Hubble Space Telescope captured what looks like a smiling face, albeit creepy, in a cluster of new stars.

"You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams when you don't vote". Vice President Mike Pence had the ideal response by channeling Will Ferrell in "Anchorman".

"The lower, arc-shaped galaxy has the characteristic shape of a galaxy that has been gravitationally lensed - its light has passed near a massive object en route to us, causing it to become distorted and stretched out of shape", NASA explains. The powerful telescope captured this pic to understand how new stars are born in the Universe. 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.

When NASA peers into the sky with any of its various telescopes, there's always the chance that scientists will spot something they've never seen before.

Launched in 1990, Hubble Space Telescope is created to study distant objects and allows researchers to peer deeper into the early Universe than would otherwise be possible with conventional telescopes.

Earlier it was reported that scientists have discovered the brightest supernova in the Universe.
