A third monolith has shown up in California

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 ?

I'll only take these monoliths serious if one pops up somewhere deep in Antarctica. In a place where no one can safely make it.

Obviously you haven't been abducted and don't know what these aliens secret plans are....once they probe your brain you know what they know and it all comes very clear what their end game is!

Lol. Okay doomer. *in the area. Also, dont know if this is legit, but: Stunt artists claim responsibility for viral marketing strategy of disappearing monoliths The monolith mystery seems to be solved as a group of stunt artists are taking responsibility and claim to sell them for $60,596 each. Over the last 24 hours, the artists, who go by the name The Most Famous Artist, have been posting up photos and clues on theirInstagram account that detail the making of the monoliths. $60,596 seems a bit steep for the crappy craftsmanship IMO...

Mystery of monoliths 'solved' as artists claim responsibility - and sell them for 35,500 https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/mystery-monoliths-solved-artists-claim-23118306 The appearance of metal monoliths in both the US and Europe fuelled speculation among conspiracy theorists and Sci-fi lovers that they came from aliens - but they have now been claimed by The Most Famous Artist

If so, the objects would have a rectangular footprint, a flawless surface, fit the 2001 monolith size ratio 1-4-9 and would be black but none of the "monoliths" even fit one of these characteristics.
