This intriguing story was found and passed along to us by A.S., to whom a big thank you, because this one adds more mystery to our Moon. The "stuff" that the Chinese Yutu 2 lunar probe, a surface lander on the far side of the Moon, found is being called, by the Chinese themselves, a "milestone". Here's the article, and note the pictures:

China's Yutu 2 rover finds 'milestone' on far side of the moon

The language being used to explain the find is in itself not only intriguing, but highly suggestive:

While not looking particularly exciting to the untrained eye, the find has generated interest among lunar scientists. "It seems to have a shard-like shape and is sticking out of the ground. That's definitely unusual," Dan Moriarty, NASA Postdoctoral Program Fellow at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, told

"Repeated impacts, stresses from thermal cycling, and other forms of weathering on the lunar surface would all tend to break down rocks into more-or-less 'spherical' shapes, given enough time," Moriarty said. "Think of how rocky beaches wear down stones to smooth, round shapes over time by repeated jostling in the waves."

Moriarty said both the shard-like shape and that pronounced "ridge" running near the edge of the rock seem to indicate that this rock is geologically young, and was emplaced relatively recently.

It's that little word "emplaced" along with "relatively recently" that has me wondering, as one might imagine. Those words, along with the second photograph from the Chinese probe, are highly suggestive:

A navigation camera image of the elongated "milestone" rock spotted on the far side of the moon by China's Yutu 2 rover.

As usual, "cue the scientist" with a "scientific" explanation:

"I would definitely guess an origin as impact ejecta from some nearby crater. It is possible that a rock with this aspect ratio could have been produced by a process known as spallation, where intact fragments of rock are blown off the nearby surface without experiencing the same degree of shock pressures that the immediate target undergoes," Moriarty said, adding that this initial assessment is just a guess.

Followup detections and data from VNIS will provide much greater insight. Clive Neal, a leading lunar expert at the University of Notre Dame, agrees that, based on the images, the specimens are impact ejecta rather than exposed bedrocks.'s nothing but "ejecta" from a crater, nothing to see here, move along. allow me the "unscientist" to tell you what I see. I see a rock, with a distinctive wedge shape, and two more or less smooth sides on the "wedge", and with one side, that facing the camera of the probe, looking rather rough, like said wedge was broken off of something, perhaps another chuck of the wedge. And, importantly, the wedge is sticking out of the ground.

That last fact, to me, puts the "ejecta" explanation into a bit of a cocked hat, because had this neat wedge-shaped rock been blown out of a crater, the chances of it landing the way it did would be rather low, I would think. It would be rather like tossing a coin and having the coin land on its edge, rather than one of its faces. Not impossible, but very unlikely. Being blown out as ejecta, the rock would more than likely tumble a bit, before coming to rest on one of its faces, not on its edge. Notably, as it tumbled across the lunar surface, it would also leave scrapes and traces of its tumbling, which is not evident in the second picture, nor, as far as I can tell, the first picture. Indeed, if one looks at the first picture, one also sees other curious "somethings" poking above the lunar surface, of which I count five. It's almost as breathtaking as the Blair Cuspids, except these are on the far side of the Moon. Some of these look to be cylindrical, while two others look either pyramidal, or alternatively, like smaller wedge shapes.

So, yea, I'm skeptical for the moment of the "scientific explanation," that we're looking at "ejecta." I think we are looking at a "something", positioned closely to five other "somethings."

And while we're at it, it's notable that the "scientific" explanation is coming from NASA and the "academy," or as I like to call it, the "quackademy," while China is referring to it as the "milestone." Perhaps, just perhaps, China is sending a message, the message being, "We found some cool stuff too, just  like the Russians and Americans did, but we found it on the far side..."

That's all. Have a nice day, and...

...see you on the flip side...

    There’s one on Phobos and Mars

    The Martian monolith is almost certainly no more than a roughly straight-edged chunk of rock that tumbled down from a nearby cliff, says the article. Where is the cliff in the photo? The one on Phobos is impact debris again…Well at least they didn’t say it was a weather balloon.

    I must inject here that BILLY CARSON has much interesting info on objects found on Mars…..don’t know if the same us true of the Moon.

    the moon id full of buildings , weird triangular shapes , bunker like shapes blocks , pyramids, spiral towers, huge wheels etc …. pre-human human ,? recent humans bases and structures ? alien past and new ?
    the photo of Rudolph Hess in his prison , a moon map on the wall with pinpoints always intrigued me . was did he know as he was captured for so long ?
    but the moon is a crazy place full of marvels for sure

  4. Roger on February 17, 2021 at 8:14 pm

    It would be nice to know how big they are, but doesn’t really impress me much. People in the secret moon base may have put them there to mess with the Chinese and let them know we were here.

    China releases a photo of a Moon item its “YUTU” Lunar Probe captured in the year of the OX; and NASA’s Mars Rover Perseverance to land functionally Thursday, 18Feb2021. Best news so far and a welcome break (hopefully, permanent departure) from the noise of useless narratives.

    Let’s see, that item stands out from its locality, thanks to the wheels and relative shadows in the lower left of the frame it seems to be hand size as well as suggests the Solar angle as does the rock, not much color for the black/white photo but it does reflect light, don’t know its weight (yet), don’t know its porosity (yet), as mentioned in the blog seems wedge shaped and not irregular as many rocks from an impacting event usually fall as, don’t know the mineral content (yet), is it the only one in the neighborhood(?), is it made up of other rock debris from an initial heat generating impact event or just cast aside debris of another impact event. Are there notable chemical interactions? Should be interesting for starters what terrestrial interpretation is assigned to this guest of YUTU.

    I will give you two choices both by Arthur C. Clarke his original short story The Sentinal or the Monolith broken from the movie it inspired 2001 A Space Odysee. Take your pick.

      could you expand on the answer you have written ?
      I am intrigued !

      • Richard on February 18, 2021 at 7:20 pm

        Could be a reference to Mars.

        I’m reading Hoagland’s DARK MISSION – The Secret History of NASA. The ‘space’ milestones always have rituals associated with them. It will be interesting to see how China attaches mysticism and deception to their lunar narrative. Hoagland makes a clear case for masonic/Egyptian Ra worship associated with ALL of NASA’s ‘discoveries’.

        Brother Edwin Eugene (Buzz) Aldrin, Jr. was an active Mason and is a member of Clear Lake Lodge No. 1417, AF&AM in Seabrook.

        On the crest of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon, The Grand Master of Texas approved Brother Aldrin’s request to open a Representation of the Grand Lodge of Texas on the Moon and, thereby, establish Masonic Territorial Jurisdiction there. He also asked Buzz to carry a special deputation on his journey. Aldrin signed this deputation and confirmed that it was, indeed, carried to the moon.

        Aldrin also carried a handmade silk Masonic flag with him on his space journey, embroidered with the words, “Supreme Council, 33°, Southern Jurisdiction, USA.” After his mission on September 16, 1969, Brother Aldrin visited the House of the Temple in Washington, DC, and presented the flag to Grand Commander Luther Smith. The flag is now located in the archives of the House of the Temple.

    There are days when all I can do is scratch my head—and it’s not for any one particular reason. I examined the photographs in the article and the debris pattern based one what is there. I read their description of what these objects are supposed to be and ended the exercise wagging my head in disbelief. This is not the first time experts have done it to us in this and other fields, and it most certainly will not be the last. So, that is the first layer of the infamous head-scratch.

    I have looked at quite a few photographs on various websites of the Moon and Mars that display anomalous objects with a more dramatic appearance than these. Some of those had me really curious as I knew what they looked like to the layman’s eye. Official interpretations of the results were either non-existent (which I actually do applaud as I don’t like to be conned) or are of equal caliber to the dandruff passing as hair on the head of these explanations. The objects I see form an interesting pattern, and the largest does look like a wedge that is nearly perpendicular to the lunar surface. I cannot tell if it is resting neatly on the surface or if it is submerged deep within the lunar soil—but however it is placed its an anomaly that makes the official explanation sound as scientific Andy Griffith’s famous sketch of a football game in one of his famous monologues. With that said, what about the pictures?

    This picture does remind me of something I have seen from my experiences while wandering in the woods during my childhood. There were several sites representing settlements or home-steads with make shift graves. I would like to know who’s body is buried on the moon–and how many. I have to say, it has the appearance of a crudely hewn grave stone with no visible iconography. If the other objects are similar except for size size does this represent a grave site for more than one individual—with the grave stone’s size representing an order of precedence with respect to importance. Why would I suggest this? If there was a war in the ancient past (or even the present) occurring on the surface of the moon, there may have been a necessity to bury bodies temporarily or permanently with crude markers for recovery or for ceremonial purposes. My point? If we are going to speculate at all, this sounds slightly more credible than the other explanation simply because it accounts for potential placement and symmetry far better than ballast from a meteor impact. But, that’s just me–and I have no real commitment to either explanation without boots on the ground. That is why things must be investigated directly!

    • roastedandsalted on February 18, 2021 at 11:28 am

      it does look like a grave marker with the soil in front collapsed. there are a few of them. wonder what they where burred in. tripped into a hole like that once. thank god it was dry.

  9. FiatLux on February 17, 2021 at 4:36 pm

    Ejecta. Yes, of course. All together now, let us chant: “Trust the science, trust the science.” D.C. al fine.

    Several filters here.
    1) China isn’t going to tell all.
    2) China news filter will probably be geopolitical specific in its filter ops.
    3) USSA filters. Are they now looking to…
    break down the media into State specific filter zones?

    …to the post.

    Got to love it!
    China; the far side of the Moon; mysterious object;
    and Moriarty investigating.

    As usual “cue the scientist”…
    the usual suspects line-up of…
    spin frames from which to interpret; and other tools of misdirection,
    and disinformation; and other media tricks of the trade,
    to throw one of the scent.
    Followed by the usual line-up of click-bait:
    stay tuned for further misdirection; “follow up detection”;
    much greater insights; and other MH370 info.

    So China has been dealt another Moon Card from the far side.
    Other Earthbound galactic players may be curious if their far side cards are in the same suit; higher quality, or lower value…
    in terms of ancient artifact treasures?

    This is the poker game of ancient warfare;
    stepped-up to actual artifacts “planted” outside,
    the “easily accessed” terrestrial ones?

    I wonder how far the Breakaways
    have physically searched, and retrieved?

    I wonder if any have been allegedly gifted some from off-planet players?

    Now, no doubt; Enquiring minds or those will prefer the Global view,
    will be finding out – as they cue-up at their local grocery stores.

    ‘Moonhenge’ came to mind, then I googled it and apparently there really is a ‘moonhenge’ , with wood not lunar rock somewhere in the U.K.
    I ll put it on my wish list of places not to go….

    Pope Nero-Caligula was needling fleece,
    during lockdown in outer space,
    when a Jesuit shark fin
    was surfacing,
    in a big chunk of lunar cheese.

    • swimsinocean on February 17, 2021 at 7:28 am

      I also noticed the shark fin cast in the shadow. ‘Lunar cheese’…made me smile!

    The narrative is weakening daily, despite “their” attempts to extend space viewing censorship to observatories (those in the Anglosphere countries, that is).
