this article about thinking that the Chang'e was an asteroid and was detedcted by the near earth object program.
Personally, I highly doubt that we will even see anything much from the Chinese as far as photos of the Moon go. We are still owed some (like 40,000)
from the Indians too.

Editor's note: this is an update on Chang'e 2, China's second lunar orbiter. The spacecraft left the moon last year for the Earth-Sun L2 point, and
is now heading towards asteroid Toutatis
It is true, they do like to intermix real and software-generated images unfortunately, and this was highlighted when they showed on TV, images of the
missions to the Chinese space station and the launches etc. It is sad, but it just the way they present it to the population of China.
