In case you have not been following this closely, the Chinese have let a small kitty out of a bag in order to start a discussion about anomalous objects on the Moon. Not very strangely, all the scientists are skirting the issue.

====================================

The Chinese have found a mystery square-shaped feature on the Moon. Well, what a surprise. Many people believe there are quite a few odd-shaped structures up there, so one would have to be discovered at some point in time. Lets all see what the boffins determine it is.

Hooey. If there was something there, the Russians would have taken credit for finding it years and years ago. I'm not buying it.

Uh oh, it's a cube, that's not good. Cubes = Saturn/Satan worship type stuff.

If it’s not a nothing, then it’s going to be explained, minimized, and then suppressed if it’s the Chinese government that got their hands on it.

However opaque and secretive you think the US government is, the Chinese government is 100x times that.

Microsoft has a picture of a park in Bolivia that shows somewhat similar cube mountains: https://www.bing.com/search?q=amboro...22&FORM=EMSDS0.

How do we know it's not something the Chinese planted there themselves? Or that's not something left behind by the US visits there? How big is this thing, supposedly?

Read the link to unmannedspaceflight.com in the first post as they are discussing how large and how far away it is.
They are already starting to make it a nothingburger on there.

If the object was only roughly 260 feet (80 meters) away, then must be pretty small.
Team scientists have expressed a strong interest in the object and Yutu 2 is now expected to spend the next 2-3 lunar days (2-3 Earth months) traversing lunar regolith and avoiding craters to get a closer look, so updates can be expected.

Per space.com:
A likely explanation for the shape would be a large boulder which has been excavated by an impact event.
