After the mysterious disappearance of Utah’s monolith as abruptly as it was discovered, an almost identical shiny triangular metal structure has been discovered in Romania on Thursday, November 26, fueling an alien invasion theory. The mysterious metal monolith appeared in Northern Romania, on Batcas Doamnei Hill in the city of Piatra Neamt, a few metres away from the well-known archaeological landmark of the Petrodava Dacian Fortress which was built by the ancient Dacian people between 82 BC and AD 106. This monolith looks almost exactly like Utah’s monolith which disappeared last week under strange circumstances and the officials of Utah reportedly refused to investigate citing lack of resources.

The new monolith found in Romania is reportedly 13 feet tall with a slanted top and got a bunch of squiggles on the back. It stands facing Mount Ceahlau, known locally as the Holy Mountain. Romanian officials have confirmed having no knowledge of who put it out there stating the monolith has been found on a private property. As the second monolith discovered within a month comes with no official explanation, the news has sparked alien invasion rumors while also prompting locals to believe that the storyline is too similar to the science fiction novel ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’. In the book, the metal monolith is used as an investigation tool by the aliens to look for signs of intelligent life throughout the galaxy. 

Similar to Romania’s monolith, Utah’s metallic structure was approximately 12 feet tall which was spotted on November 18 by Bureau of Land Management officers who were counting bighorn sheep from a helicopter. Just like the monolith appeared out of nowhere, it also vanished in thin air and no explanation has been found on the matter yet.

From wry alien theories to officials not paying more attention, social media users have a lot to say about Romania’s monolith appearance. A user stated, “It'd be funny if it actually were aliens trying to get our attention, and we're all "nah, just some art dude and copycats." Another said, “Maybe they saw 2001: A Space Odyssey and thought that was how we communicate.” Another user noted, “If a camera isn't set up to stream the monument 24/7 to see who takes it away this time I'm going to rage. This is a real life Scooby-Doo mystery and I've spent my life thinking of at least ATTEMPTED foolproof ways of sussing out the logic of them and DAMMIT JUST PUT A CAMERA UP.”\
