After monoliths popped up in Utah, Romania and California, a new one has been found Sunday in the Isle of Wight in England.

According to Sky News, the mystery structure was spotted by locals on the island that lies off the south coast of England.

Tom Dunford said he was walking his dog with his fiancé when he spotted the structure. “I knew about all the monolith stories recently, so I recognised it straight away,” he told the news outlet.

After news of the fourth monolith broke, many reportedly flocked to the site to see the mystery object.

Take a look here:

A spokesman for the National Trust, which owns the section of the beach where the monolith was erected, told CNN that they are not sure how the monolith was erected on the beach. “We were unaware of the monolith’s presence until this morning, but we’ve now visited Compton Beach and it seems secure on a wooden plinth and is made from mirrored sections of plastic or perspex material,” the spokesman was quoted by the outlet.

Here’s how people reacted to the emergence of the latest structure:

Earlier this week, a monolith had appeared outside a shop in Pittsburgh.

However, the owner of the Pittsburgh candy store revealed he commissioned the 10-foot tall structure to capitalise on the recent interest in the structures.
