After Utah structure, now mystery monolith in Romania disappears

A metal monolith, which was spotted on a hillside in Romania days after a similar structure disappeared in Utah, too vanished on Tuesday from mountainous Neamt county.

The mysterious disappearance comes four days after a monolith’s sudden appearance close to an ancient fortress sparked speculation it may be related to a mystery structure seen in the United States.

Rather than being an alien structure, the truth of the Romanian monolith may be more prosaic. “The 2.8 metre (9ft) tall structure disappeared overnight as quietly as it was erected last week,” journalist Robert Iosub of the Ziar Piatra Neamt local newspaper, who had seen the structure, told Reuters.

“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, he said. The sheet metal structure had a badly-welded join, he added.

A spokeswoman for Piatra Neamt police, Georgiana Mosu, said officers are conducting an inquiry into the illegally-installed structure, which was positioned in a protected archaeological area from November 27.

First discovery in Utah

A similar ‘alien-looking’ pillar was spotted in a Utah desert in the United States about in November. It disappeared after generating much excitement among science-fiction fans, hearkening to Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 film, “2001: A Space Odyssey”, based on a novel by Arthur C. Clarke.

In the Kubrick movie, an alien monolith is a recurring symbol that appears to play a role in the development of human evolution.

Alien action or local prank?

The disappearance of the monolith in Romania comes even as questions persist about the origin and then the disappearance of a shiny monolith in the remote desert of Utah. The mysterious metal, which sparked a guessing game over how it got there, disappeared after its discovery on November 18.

The Bureau of Land Management in Utah said it received “credible reports” that the object had been removed “by an unknown party”. The bureau “did not remove the structure which is considered private property,” it said in a statement.
