The picture was published on the official website of the telescope.

It's not the first time the telescope has snapped a "smiley face". NASA has released the photo of distant galaxies seemingly smiling back to the observatory. These galaxies got its name because of the regions of active formation of young blue stars, which are usually located near their cores. It showed a number of bright lights in different shapes, colors, and sizes. 'Two yellow-hued blobs hang atop a sweeping arc of light.

The arc-shaped galaxy is due to it being gravitationally lensed, which basically means its light passed near a massive object causing it to become distorted and stretched out of shape.

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. Because of its position, the space telescope can see and capture the effect, which cannot be detected by ground-based observatories.

After the first of the late restarts, Harvick was on the inside and was able to keep Blaney from clearing him on the backstretch. This time, there was no late-race glitch to interrupt Kevin Harvick's domination of a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race.

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.

Stars are born within giant clouds of gas. New stars are formed over the course of millions of years.

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.

Scientists Agency NASA space telescope has recorded the structure, which is very similar to a smile, said "NV" with reference to Science Alert.
