Mysterious New Monolith Appears in California

A monolith has been spotted in Southern California, and it appears to be similar to one discovered in the Utah desert.

It’s unclear who placed the monolith on a hiking trail in Atascadero, about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, KEYT-TV reported Wednesday.

The tall, silver structure drew some hikers to the area after photos were posted on social media.

At least two other monoliths have been spotted elsewhere.

A similar structure that officials said was made of riveted plates of stainless steel was toppled in Utah by a group of people who said, “leave no trace,” KSTU-TV reported.

It had been placed without permission on public land.
