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.  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 NASA’s official website.  
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.  
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. Image courtesy : NASA Tweet Follow @thenewsminute
