A monolith has been found on the Isle of Wight in England which is similar to the ones discovered in the United States and Romania.
A monolith is a geological feature consisting of a single massive stone or rock, such as some mountains, or a single large piece of rock placed as, or within, a monument or building. Erosion usually exposes the geological formations, often made of very hard and solid igneous or metamorphic rock.
Tom Dunford went for a walk with his dog, fiancee, and sister on Sunday morning when he saw the mysterious mirrored object in front of them on the island’s Compton Beach.
“We went down the steps and to the right about 100 yards in front of us we saw this big reflection of the sun,” the 29-year-old told Sky News.
“I knew about all the monolith stories recently, so I recognized it straight away.”
In the last week, four such structures were identified in the Utah desert, on a hill in Romania, and atop a Californian mountain.
Dunford said that the monolith seen by him was 10 ft tall and “really reflective”.
“The person who put it there knows what they’re doing. It’s really reflective. It’s someone playing a practical joke, I don’t believe in any of these conspiracy theories,” he added.
As soon as the news of the monolith on the island spread, several people gathered to see the object.
“There have been quite a few people flocking down to see it today,” Dunford said.
“It’s something a bit different and interesting to happen at this time of year.”
