The Chinese rover Yutu 2 has spotted a mysterious object on the horizon while working through the Von Karmann crater on the far side of the Moon.

Yutu 2 spotted a cube-shaped object on the horizon in the north and about 260 feet (80 meters) away during the mission’s 36 lunar day in November, according to Yutu 2. published By Our Space, a Chinese language information channel of the National Space Agency (CNSA) in China.

Our space referred to the object as “mysterious hut” (神秘/shenmi xiawu), but this is a placeholder name and not an accurate description.

Team scientists have expressed great interest in the facility, and Yutu 2 is now expected to spend the next 2-3 lunar days (2-3 Earth months), taking a closer look at the lunar regolith and avoiding the crater. Therefore, updates can be expected.
