NASA has found the best reason to be happy today: the universe is literally smiling. 

“Pictures of space get a lot of smiles around here, but it’s pretty rare for one of them to smile back at us. This adorable image — in which the galaxy cluster SDSS J1038+4849 seems to be smiling at the camera — comes courtesy of the Hubble Space Telescope. It was spotted by Judy Schmidt, who submitted a version of the image to the Hubble’s Hidden Treasures image processing competition, where anyone can sift through the Hubble’s massive data pools to highlight hitherto ignored sights from the stars.”
