Mysterious monolith on Isle of Wight days after similar pillars spotted in US & Romania.

A MYSTERIOUS monolith has been spotted on the Isle of Wight - just days after similar pillars were spotted in the US and Romania.

Residents were left baffled when the structure appeared at the bottom of a sheer cliff on Compton Beach.

Ami Blackburn, 31, went to investigate and take her own photos with her son and boyfriend after seeing snaps on social media but reading rumours they may have been photoshopped.

Miss Blackburn, who is a healthcare assistant from Newport, Isle of Wight, said: “I thought I was very bizarre when I first saw it and immediately researched the ones found in Utah, California and Romania.

"We moved some of the sand from around the bottom and it's partly buried but we felt underneath and it was made of wood with mirrors stuck to the side.

"I'd love the idea of it being delivered by aliens but it's more than likely an unusual art project. But can 2020 get any weirder?”

Tom Dunford, another Isle of Wight Resident, told Sky News the structure was 10ft tall and “really reflective”.

He said he thought the monolith was “someone playing a practical joke”, but had caused quite a stir among locals who flocked to the beach to take a look.
