The ongoing mystery of the metallic monoliths appearing around the world is showing no signs of slowing down.
First there was one in Utah (which subsequently disappeared), then there was a second in Romania.
Now a third monolith has appeared - this time on a mountain in Atascadero, California.
The phenomenon, which started out when a helicopter pilot spotted the first monolith in the Utah desert on November 18th, has become a topic of heated debate over the last few weeks.
This latest monolith, which looks very similar to the previous two, has since been visited by dozens of hikers who have trekked up to the top of the hill to take photographs.
According to local paper Atascadero News, the object is 10ft tall, 18 inches wide, has three identical sides welded at the corners and is constructed from stainless steel.
It does however seem to be a lot flimsier than the Utah monolith which was planted in the ground.
Could this be part of some sort of viral promotional exercise or is the latest monolith simply a copycat sculpture created by a third party unrelated to the original one ?
Also, how many more of these mysterious structures are going to turn up ?
