A monolith has been spotted on California’s central coast.
The roughly 10-feet-tall stainless steel statue is not the first of its kind discovered in the last few weeks, at least two more were seen in Utah and Romania.
Just as mysterious as the previous two structures, it’s unclear who placed the three-sided object at the top of the Pine Mountain Loop hiking trail in Atascadero, Calif.
According to The Atascadero News, the obelisk was spotted Wednesday morning, attracting dozens of local hikers.

Utah’s mysterious monolith vanishes
Mystery monolith vanishes in Romania – alien action or local prank?
The structure appears to be made of stainless steel and was not attached to the ground, the local paper reported.
This past week, similarly mysterious metallic sculptures have made headlines around the world.
The one in Utah, which was first spotted on Nov. 18, disappeared earlier this week.
It was apparently demolished on Monday by a group of men who considered it “trash,” according to a photographer who documented the object’s demise on Instagram.
On Tuesday, the monolith in Romania’s mountainous Neamt county also vanished, four days after its appearance.
