Chinas Yutu 2 lunar rover has photographed what is being described as a mystery hut on the far side of the moon, and Chinese scientists are eager to have the robotic exploration vehicle investigate it further.

The finding was shared on Our Space, an online publication affiliated with the China National Space Administration (CNSA) that is documenting Yutus lunar mission.

Yutu 2 first landed on the moon on the Change 4 Chinese spacecraft back on January 3rd, 2019, and it was the first space mission to successfully soft-land on the far side (or dark side) of the Moon. The hut was spotted by the rover on the missions 36th lunar day, each of which is about 29 Earth days.

Suddenly, an obtrusive cube on the northern skyline attracted their attention, Our Space writes (translated from Chinese to English). This object pierced through the winding of the skyline, like a mysterious hut that appeared out of thin air.

There was a large baby impact crater beside it. Was it a home built by aliens after the crash landing? Or is it the pioneer spacecraft of the predecessors to explore the moon?

The photo shot by Yutu 2 shows that the cube-shaped object was about 80 meters (~260 feet) away on the horizon to the north in the 112-mile-wide (180km) Von Krmn impact crater.

Our Space referred to the object as , or mystery house, and says that the missions scientists were immediately curious about the object after hearing about it from the rovers pilots.

This thing is interesting! they reportedly responded. Lets go check it out!

It will take some time before the rover is able to get to the bottom of the mystery, though. Despite being only 260 feet away, it will take the rover about 2 to 3 lunar days, or two to three months of trekking before it will reach the object to get a better look at it.

Andrew Jones, a journalist tracking Chinas space program, Tweets that a possible explanation for the hut is that it is a large boulder that was pulled out of the lunar surface by an impact event.
