You didn't mention the gravitational lensing.
Really cool!

Yep, gravitational lensing, due to the Relativistic time-space bending. I'd love to see the Electric Universe supporters (who reject Relativity) explain that.

The really cool part is that this "smiley" was spotted by a member of public, 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. www.washingtonpost.com...

Here it is as seen by the Sloan Digitized Sky Survey: click!

Is this from one of the nine Deep Field pics? The Hubble should make a new Deep Field picture at least once a month. Imagine if we had a couple hundred Deep Fields to play with by now, that would be my ideal Hubble project.

Here's a list of the nine Deep Fields, from Wikipedia, not all of them are by Hubble, and one is a composite of the same field with added data:

Perhaps it's the Universe's way of telling us all to quit slacking off and get back to work.

Wait, there's a competition for Hubble image processing?!!!! I didn't know that, I've been processing Hubble data routinely for a long time now. Man, I should have entered the contest!

This is what I thought of at first, in part due to your comment about "messing with us"... at least, before I noticed that the "extended" smile going up the left side is a disconnected, seperate galaxy (i think) and can instead be seen as the left cheek (it's right/our left) to compliment the right "cheek"...
