Monolith appears in Southern California, similar to Utah one

Monolith appears in Southern California, similar to Utah one

Like its predecessors, there are no clues as to how the Californian monolith got there or what objective it serves - other than to spark rampant speculation.

Just a day after people began to notice the odd metallic structure decorating a trail in Atascadero's Stadium Park, the monolith disappeared, hikers say. The group broke the monolith into pieces, loaded it onto a carrier and left, saying "leave no trace".

Bernards uploaded photos of the takedown and an account of what happened on Instagram. It was said to be taken by his friend.

Since being discovered, the monoliths have been taken down or have reappeared at such a rate that, frankly, we've all lost track. At that point, I didn't know about any previous news story about the monolith in Utah.

Others believe it might have been a prop leftover from the filming of Westworld, the HBO sci-fi series that filmed in the Moab desert area around the same time, which also feels plausible. Lewis also added a short video showing a group of men removing the object.

Atascadero Land Preservation Society president Mike Orvis said his organization did not have any information on the monolith, including when it appeared or who is responsible for erecting it.

It is still not known if the men who removed the object were the same ones who installed it, or even if the two accounts of Bernards and Lewis mesh together.

The mysterious structure brought global attention and caused many to wonder about its creator. That said, his son has recalled that his father once told him that he'd one day like to leave his artwork in remote locations to be discovered later on.

Just like the first monolith in Utah's San Juan County, this metal slab measured between 10 feet and 12 feet in height and appeared to be built using a dimly reflective metal material.

Another metallic structure was spotted late last week in Romania. standing tall on a hill called Boatca Doamnei, just outside the city of Piatra Neamt.

"There is no reason to panic for those who think there is still life in the universe", Carabelea quipped, according to a translation by The Independent.

While extra-terrestrial tests were never conducted on the metals making up the structure, we do have to debunk the alien theory.

He had earlier said on Facebook that he was honoured that aliens had "chosen our city" but it would have been better if they had obtained a building permit first.
