Monolith appears surprising Turkeytext_fields
A mystery monolith has appeared again, this time in Turkey, near the UNESCO World Heritage.
The Turkish authorities are investigating the monolith in the southeastern province, Sanliurfa, which suddenly appeared next to Gobekli Tepe, the world's oldest temple site.
Turkish media reported on Sunday that the 3-meter-tall metal slab was found with an engraving in the ancient Turkic language that says, "Look at the sky, see the Moon."
The monolith fad first made way in US state Utah's red-rock desert in late October last year. Similar replicas were later discovered in Romania, Poland, Canada, Britain. The origin or the reason for its appearances are yet to be discovered. However, many netizens believe this could be a marketing stunt as the monoliths resemble the black monolith in "2001: A Space Odyssey," a sci-fi classic.
The popped-up monoliths have also disappeared in numerous countries, making the public wonder if it's those same ones resurfacing elsewhere.
