So far so close pareidolia.

DFT geometry optimization of cobaltabisdicarbollide [3,3-Co-(1,2-C2B9H11)2]- anion structure using B3LYP/6-31+g(d,p) hybrid functional. The transparent balls and sticks model is rendered using the diamond index of refraction (2.4) for the objects and superimposed on the picture of the lenticular galaxy Fornax A. This composition is the front cover for the Volume 41 Issue 9 of Chem Soc Revs (2012)
