Currently, the rover is said to be at the Von Kármán Crater on the lunar surface and as per the reports, it spotted the cube-shaped mysterious hut-like structure 80 meters away from its location.
As per a report by Our Space, ” a Chinese language science outreach channel with the China National Space Administration (CNSA), the rover had made the discovery in November this year when it was on the 37th day on the lunar surface.”
Chineses scientists have termed the structure as a ‘Mystery Hut’ and expressed that they want to visit the structure.

“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?” reads the reports of Our space.
