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.
Ah. We have an update from Yutu-2 on the lunar far side, including an image of a cubic shape on the northern horizon Rs80m away from the rover in Von Kármán crater. Referred to as "神秘小屋" ("mystery house"), the next 2-3 lunar days will be spent getting closer to check it out. pic.twitter.com/LWPZoWN05I— Andrew Jones (@AJ_FI) December 3, 2021
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.
So yeah, it's not an obelisk or aliens, but certainly something to check out, and hard to discern much from the image. But large boulders (right) are sometimes excavated by impacts, as seen by the Chang'e-3 mission, which launched 8 years ago on Dec 1.
