Monoliths started popping up around the world after first being spotted in a Utah desert on November, 10.
Monoliths have also appeared in the UK, Texas, Poland, Colombia and California. One was reported in India as well, at a park in Ahmedabad. A gingerbread monolith was spotted in San Francisco around Christmas, too.
The metallic objects have been described as monoliths due to their similarity to the props used in Stanley Kubrick’s film 2001: A Space Odyssey. In the film, the appearance of the monoliths precedes the evolution of mankind.
