This image, taken with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, shows one of four arcs formed of the light from the galaxy nicknamed the Sunburst Arc. Created by strong gravitational lensing, this bright arc of light shows at least one copy of the image of the galaxy – several more copies are visible in the other three arcs.
