Washington, November 5 NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has captured a formation of galaxies that looks like a smiling face, the US space agency said.

On Saturday, he posted an image on his Instagram strap that showed two yellow orbs above an arc of light – painting a smiley face in space.

Asking his followers to find the face, NASA explained that using an unprecedented resolution of the Hubble camera, he was able to locate and study star formation regions.

The arc of light is a galaxy whose shape has been distorted and stretched as a result of the passage of an enormous source of gravity, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

"The arc-shaped lower galaxy is shaped like a galaxy that was gravitationally photographed – its light passed close to a massive object toward us, causing it to become distorted and stretched," NASA said.

The smiling face is located in the cluster of galaxies SDSS J0952 + 3434 and was filmed with the Wide Field Camera 3 of the Hubble Space Telescope (WFC3).

The Hubble telescope returned to normal operations on Oct. 26 after successfully recovering a backup gyroscope that replaced a defect in October.

Originally set to last for 15 years, Hubble has already been making scientific breakthroughs for more than 28 years.
