And… It’s Gone! Romanian “Monolith” Has Disappeared

Just yesterday we reported on the disappearing “monolith” phenomenon.

First, the Bureau of Land Management in Utah had discovered a strange “monolith” in a remote corner of the desert. Then, just as mysteriously as it arrived, the 10-12 foot structure vanished without a trace.

Days ago, a similar “monolith” appeared in an ancient Dacian fortress of Romania’s Neamt county.

Now, like its cousin in Utah, we’re hearing that the Romanian “monolith” has similarly dissapeared.

But are these strange structures proof of an extraterrestrial presence–or is it something altogether more mundane? Reuters talked to some Romanian locals who have some more grounded theories regarding this latest “monolith”.

“An unidentified person, apparently a bad local welder, made it … now all that remains is just a small hole covered by rocky soil,” local reporters had discovered.

Many believe the Utah “monolith” was the work of famed conceptual artist John McCracken. The New York Times reports:

The artist’s son, Patrick McCracken, remains completely puzzled by the monolith. But when he heard the news, he thought back to an evening in May 2002, when his father was living in Medanales, N.M., in a small adobe house overlooking a mesa. “We were standing outside looking at the stars and he said something to the effect of that he would like to leave his artwork in remote places to be discovered later,” he recalled in a phone interview.

“Monolith” is a term popularized by Stanley Kubrick in his 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey. The alien structures seem to play a part in triggering human evolution.
