The News Minute | February 11, 2015 | 05.20 pm IST Have you ever looked up into the sky and seen a weirdly-shaped cloud? Well, NASA took a snap of a galaxy cluster which looks so much like a face smiling from space.Â Taken using the Hubble Space Telescope, the galaxy cluster can be seen smiling with what look like two orange eyes and a button nose, says NASAÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s official website.Â Ã¢â‚¬Â¨The two eyes in actual are very bright galaxies, while the smile lines are arcs created by an effect known as strong gravitational lensing, said the site.Â Ã¢â‚¬Â¨The most massive structures in the Universe, these galaxy clusters warp spacetime around time and act as cosmic lenses distorting, magnifying and bending light behind them.
