Fans of mystery were sent into a furore on November 18 when a mysterious metal structure was discovered in a remote region of the Utah desert, USA. Officials of the Utah Department of Public Safety found the huge metal monolith in a remote region of the Utah desert during a helicopter flyover of the region.
The structure baffled experts, as there was no origin explanation for the strange object, which was 12ft (3.7m) high, with theories ranging from an art installation to a film prop – and even aliens.
However, the monolith disappeared at some point over the weekend of November 28, with no trace of its exit.
But another twist in the tale has seen a similar object pop up in Romania.
The monolith, which stands at 13 ft tall, was found on the Batca Doamnei Hill in northern Romania, where the ruins of a fort built by the ancient Dacian people between 82 BC and AD 106 remains.
The local mayor of Piatra Neamt, Andrei Carabelea, stoked the alien theory fire with a statement on Facebook.
He said: “There is no reason to panic for those who think there is still life in the Universe.
“My guess is that some alien, cheeky and terrible teenagers left home with their parents’ UFO and started planting metal monoliths around the world.
“First in Utah and then at Piatra Neamt. I am honoured that they chose our city.
“Beyond the conspiracy theories that can be tempting, I’d like to see this randomness as further proof that our city is special. For the earthlings and (maybe) not only.”
However, Mr Carabelea said that any pesky aliens should have sought planning permission before planting the structure.
He continued: “I would have appreciated their bold gesture more if they had followed the rules and followed the legal steps to obtain a building permit.
“We will try to clarify the legal situation of the monolith and discover the impudent.
“However, we will be tolerant of them if the new goal will attract more tourists.”
The helicopter pilot who discovered the first monument in Utah believes the structures are part of a “new wave” of art installations.
Bret Hutchings told local Utah news channel KSLTV: “I’m assuming it’s some new wave artist or something or, you know, somebody that was a big 2001: A Space Odyssey fan.”
However, others are convinced that the statues are of extraterrestrial origin. Prominent alien hunter Scott C Waring stated that when the first metal structure was discovered in Utah, he thought aliens placed it there.
He said on November 19: “The metal monolith was just sticking out of the desert floor and no explanation of how it happened or why it took place.
“This could be the first signs of an alien base under the ground or a sign that alien needed an antenna-like device to allow other aliens to homier on their location – looks 100 percent alien to me.”
