NASA’s venerable space telescope is seeing double in a stunning new image of a distant galaxy. 

The new image from the Hubble Space Telescope captures a galaxy named SGAS J143845+145407, located in the northern constellation Boötes — one of the largest constellations in the sky. The mirror image of the galaxy at the center of this new photo is the result of strong gravitational lensing, which is an astronomical phenomenon that can warp, magnify or even duplicate the appearance of distant galaxies.
