Ridgewood NJ, Yutu-2, the Chinese rover that landed on the far side of the Moon in 2019, has spotted a cube-shaped object while traversing the Von Kármán crater. An image of the object was captured from 260 feet away, too far for astronomers to figure what it is.

The rover captured an image of the object from 260 feet away—too far for astronomers to get a clear sense of the object’s identity. But Yutu-2 is slated to spend the next two to three lunar days (or two to three months on Earth) travelling the region of the Moon to get a closer look at the “Monolith” .

The sighting has led to some wild eyed speculation over what the object may be including imagery from the 2001: A Space Odyssey, a  1968 science fiction novel written by Arthur C. Clarke and the 1968 film directed by Stanley Kubrick.
