In late 2020, the appearance of a series of metal columns was reported internationally. Often referred to as "monoliths", these sheet metal structures began to be constructed in the wake of the discovery of the Utah monolith, a 3 m (9.8 ft)-tall pillar made of metal sheets riveted into a triangular prism, placed in a red sandstone slot canyon in northern San Juan County, Utah. The structure was placed there sometime between July and October 2016 based on images from Google Earth, but only attracted media attention after it was reported in late November 2020 by state biologists who discovered it during a helicopter survey of wild bighorn sheep.
|List of 2020 monoliths|
The first monolith, found in Utah
|Medium||Stainless steel or aluminium (assumed)|
|Location||Original monolith found in San Juan County, Utah, United States; similar artifacts subsequently reported worldwide|
Soon after the Utah discovery on November 18, 2020, reports emerged on social media of similar metal columns being found in many other places throughout the world, including locations across North America, South America, Central America and Europe. Over one hundred and seventy similar metal columns have been reported from various locations around the world.
The origins of these structures varied; some monoliths were made by artists inspired by news coverage of the original Utah pillar; others, like the two Pittsburgh monoliths, were made by local businesses for promotional purposes. Some monoliths were subsequently removed. The monoliths have been compared in the media to the Monolith that appeared in the 1968 science fiction film, 2001: A Space Odyssey (film), giving rise to speculation about an extraterrestrial origin, although the phenomenon has also been viewed as a craze or an Internet hoax.
List by locationEdit

And this was my contribution to that — engagement of thinking.". It has recently disappeared leaving a metallic sphere in its place.
On December 10, 2020, a monolith was reported in a construction site in Zenata near Casablanca.

On December 3, 2020, a monolith appeared in the area of Villa Sforza Cesarini, Lanuvio in the province of Rome. Unlike other monoliths, on both sides of the structure there is incomprehensible writing. On December 8, investigators identified the people behind the installation, a group of artists from Castelli Romani in the Metropolitan City of Rome. The artists have not been charged and the monolith remains in place.
On December 8, 2020, a monolith was discovered in Beneden-Leeuwen in the province of Gelderland. It was removed at the request of a citizen, since it was too close to her house.

On November 26, 2020, a monolith was discovered in Romania on Bâtca Doamnei Hill in the city of Piatra Neamț, near the historical Petrodava Dacian Fortress. The monolith was found on private property and was quoted as having been placed there "illegally". The case is currently under investigation. Jurnal FM stated on November 27 that they had actually "received a mail containing a clip and some photos regarding a strange structure found on a hill," on the preceding Tuesday, notably prior to the disappearance of the Utah monolith. The clip points out the structure's similarity to the Utah monolith, while also highlighting major differences in its reflective properties and texture. On November 29, Jurnal FM published an update that the monolith from Romania had also disappeared, mentioning that a "bright light" had been reported, though it did not provide a specific source for that report. "Locals thought the light came from a car, but the light pointed towards the sky. In the morning the place where the monolith stood erect was empty, only a faint imprint remains on the ground covered by snow."
On December 1, 2020, a local newspaper, Ziar Piatra Neamț, confirmed to Reuters that the Romanian monolith had disappeared. The paper made the additional claim that a "bad local welder" had "apparently" made the item, though that person's identity remains unknown.
On December 8, 2020, a monolith structure was discovered near the town of Ayllón, Spain. The local council advised that no one were near the area due to the dangerous landscape.

On December 6, 2020, a reflective monolith was found on Compton Beach on the Isle of Wight. This monolith, unlike other installations, was not made of metal, but rather from a wooden plinth covered in mirrors. Two days later on December 8, it was claimed by local designer Tom Dunford. The monolith sold for £810 via online auction with 53 bids, with the proceeds going to charity.
On December 9, 2020, a similar monolith was discovered on the peak of Glastonbury Tor, outside the town of Glastonbury, Somerset.

The same day, another monolith was spotted on top of a hill on Dartmoor near the village of Throwleigh.
On December 11, 2020, three monoliths were spotted: in Croydon, South London, at a primary school in St Albans, Hertfordshire, and in Lerwick, Shetland. The Hertfordshire monolith disappeared again after one day, and was part of a writing experiment for the pupils according to Kevin Byrne, the premises manager of the school, in a phonecall with a Dutch investigator on December 21.
On January 1, 2021, three new monoliths were sighted. One was positioned just outside of Salisbury, Wiltshire. When it was found by the ITV cameraman John Scammell, the words "Happy New Year" followed by an X symbol had been drawn onto the frost on the monolith, as well as a section of the frost that had been rubbed away to reveal the metallic material it was constructed from. Whether the message was written by the creator(s) of the monolith, or a visitor to it, is currently unconfirmed. On 3 January the Salisbury monolith was found to have been vandalised. It was damaged beyond repair and had to be removed from it's position on the Laverstock Downs. The second monolith appeared in Sheldon, Birmingham, UK. The third monolith (appropriately for the Steel City, made of stainless steel) appeared on Parkwood Springs in Sheffield. The Sheffield monolith disappeared by the 3rd January, as mysteriously as it appeared

On December 13, 2020, a 10 foot tall monolith was discovered by a local resident who was driving around the farm land in Eureka Springs, in which it was located.

The owner of the venue claims all entrances and exits to the property are monitored by surveillance equipment, however they never depict any visitor entering or exiting the campgrounds.
On December 2, 2020, a triangular reflective metal column was found on Pine Mountain in Atascadero, California. This appeared to be hollow and not secured to the ground. On December 4, three young men, from Orange County, referring to themselves as military veterans, livestreamed themselves destroying the monolith on DLive, replacing it with a large wooden cross and chanting "Christ is king!". Members of the group are also heard singing country songs, and were heard saying “we don’t want illegal aliens from Mexico or outer space”. The group’s chants and slang suggest that they were part of the Groyper movement.
According to the local mayor, Heather Moreno, “We are upset that these young men felt the need to drive five hours to come into our community and vandalize the monolith ... The monolith was something unique and fun in an otherwise stressful time.”
On December 5, a group of four artists (Wade McKenzie, Travis Kenney, Randall Kenney and Jared Riddle) declared that they were the creators of the original structure, and after it was toppled, decided to replace it with a new one. According to one of the artists, Wade McKenzie, “We intended for it to be a piece of guerrilla art. But when it was taken down in such a malicious manner, we decided we needed to replace it.” The next day, the local deputy city manager, Terrie Banish, said that the city was "happy to see it return".
On December 5, 2020, a monolith was found in the Los Padres National Forest of San Luis Obispo County. This monolith resembles the monolith in Atascadero, but the structure's top features “CAUTION” written in red and a picture of a UFO, a beam and a human. Kenney and McKenzie denied any connection to this monolith, however thought it could be the same monolith taken from Pine Mountain since the original had never been recovered.

On December 6, 2020, two separate monoliths were reported in Boulder. The first was found in Chatauqua Park, South Boulder.

On December 3, 2020 a mini-monolith appeared in the centre of Fayetteville. This monolith is similar in appearance to the others, but is only three feet tall. Later that day at 17:00 one of the public cameras showed one or several people in a white van which led to a local business called the Blashfield Sign company. When owner Matt Blashfield was asked about involvement with the monolith he just laughed and denied having anything to do with it.
On December 3, 2020, a monolith appeared outside Grandpa Joe's Candy Shop in Pittsburgh. This monolith was not mysterious like the others as it was placed by the store owner, Chris Beers. Beers explained the monolith that day. He stated "“I knew I could get a viral hit off of this. Yes, it’s fake. I built it myself,” Beers said. “But the message is: Support small business. I just wanted to make people laugh and have fun and get a good kick out of it.” Beers' monolith was stolen overnight on December 5, but was rebuilt by Beers the next day.
In January 2021, a metal monolith appeared next to a trail by the banks of the Trinity River in Fort Worth.

On November 18, 2020, the Utah monolith was discovered in a canyon in northern San Juan County. This monolith sparked an international craze for reporting similar discoveries.

On December 10, 2020, a monolith was discovered along the Seaford railway line, just south of the Noarlunga Centre in Adelaide, South Australia. The monolith has four separate coordinates marked on the side. It is believed to be erected separate from the YouTube group, who filmed themselves erecting a monolith outside of Melbourne. The coordinates appear to be (from top to bottom): (40.7624N, 73.9738W), (15.2413973N, 145.7122932E), (17.75N, 142.5E), (29.97N, 31.1375E). The second coordinate is based on the news report; it is hard to make out from photos and thus can't be verified without a clear photo. These coordinates point approximately to: (1) Trump Tower, New York City, New York, USA, (2) Managaha Island, North Mariana Islands, (3) The Mariana Trench (NW of Managaha Island), (4) The Sphinx in Giza, Egypt. This monolith was replaced with three metal rebar poles/stakes. The 3 clear coordinates point in a straight line from Trump Tower to the Sphinx to the Mariana Trench (with the less clear coordinate of Managaha Island being near the Mariana Trench.
Central America and the CaribbeanEdit
