Chinese moon rover Yutu...

The pics of this craft on the lunar surface have been floating all over the net:



And my question is: If the craft is alone in the moon, who the heck took those pictures?

I can see it from down under if I squint really hard.

It could have been taken during testing while on the Earth.

They've reestablished contact.

Included in the article is a video selfie that the Jade Rabbit took of itself. You'll notice that the terrain is much different than the picture posted at the top of the thread. So that photo is possibly from a training area.

Who took this pictures? Maybe Chan'Er, the moon goddess who is the owner of Yutu in the myth.
