After the monolith in the middle of the Utah desert was suddenly removed without a trace (later to have been done so by TikTokers), a third monolith has been discovered in California. This one is slightly different than that which was discovered in Utah, but the mystery of how these three got to their locations remains the same. In addition to Utah and California, a monolith similar to those two was discovering in Romania.
Los Angeles Times reports:
A shiny metal monolith has been spotted on California’s Central Coast that appears similar to one discovered in the Utah desert.
It’s unclear who placed the gleaming structure at the top of the Pine Mountain Loop hiking trail in Atascadero, Fox affiliate KKFX in San Luis Obispo reported Wednesday. The tall, silver column drew some hikers to the area after photos were posted on social media.
“Pretty sure it wasn’t here yesterday,” hiker Dennis Swanson told the TV station.
At least two other monoliths have been spotted elsewhere. A similar structure that officials said was made of riveted plates of stainless steel drew international attention after wildlife officials stumbled across it in southeastern Utah, planted in the area’s distinctive red rock.
