NASA Hubble telescope captures smiling face in space

The Hubble Telescope finally proves that when we stare at space, sometimes the galaxy smiles back.

This image posted to NASA's site Friday shows a formation of galaxies that look a lot like a smiling face .

"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 says .

This image was spotted as part of Hubble mission to better understand how new stars are born.

The high-powered WFC3 camera has such amazing resolution that it can locate regions of star formations so NASA scientists can better study them.
