China's Yutu 2 rover has been slowly rolling across the lunar surface since landing in Von Kármán crater on the far side of the moon on January 3, 2019. On December 3, 2021, it logged a strange entry in its diary. It spied a cube-shaped object on the horizon and nicknamed it the "mystery hut".

Behold, the Mystery Hut! What could it be?

Upon closer inspection, it turned out to be a rock.

Yutu 2's drive team named it "jade rabbit" for its resemblance to a rabbit eating carrots.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
