China's mysterious "moon cube" is a mystery no longer. The big reveal: It's a rock that's not even shaped like a cube.

The nation's Yutu-2 rover discovered the object — which appeared to be a grey cube looming on the lunar horizon — in early December. The China National Space Administration (CNSA) dubbed it "mysterious hut," playfully speculating that the cube might be an alien house or spacecraft.
