The Hubble Space Telescope recently caught galaxy cluster SDSS J1038+4849 mugging for the camera.

"You can make out its two orange eyes and white button nose," explained the Hubble website.

"In the case of this happy face," they continued, "the two eyes are very bright galaxies and the misleading smile lines are actually arcs caused by an effect known as strong gravitational lensing."
