The unusual sight was captured by the NASA / ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

The galaxy appearing has been nicknamed the Sunburst Arc.

It is almost 11 billion light-years away.

The Sunburst Arcade is the only one in the captured image due to the effect of gravitational lensing.

A gravitational lens refers to matter That DG UH the Direction of light passing nearby it distorted Due to gravity Bending the space in ITS gravitational field.

This effect is the illusion of multiple times.

The Sunburst Arc has been published.

The galaxy actually appears multiple times within horse arc.

Hubble uses a cosmic magnifying lens to study objects like this.

It allows astronomers.
