A few days back, photos of a cube-shaped object spotted on the surface of the Moon was relased by China's Yutu-2 moon rover. It is now the talk of social media.

According to Space.com, the rover spotted the object as it made its way across the Von Karman crater on the far side of the Moon.

The Yutu-2 rover is part of the Chinese Chang'e 4 mission to the Moon since 2019.

Andrew Jones, a journalist for Space.com, highlighted the unusual sighting in a series of tweets shared Friday. "Image of a cubic shape on the northern horizon - 80m away from the rover in Von Karman crater," he wrote.

According to CNET, the object has been dubbed "mystery house" and scientists are likely to drive the rover closer to it in order to get a better look.
