Another monolith has been sighted, this time in the Netherlands.
A number of these strange objects have been spotted in the past few weeks, with others found in the US, Colombia, Romania and the UK.
In this latest instance, a group of hikers stumbled across the mysterious structure while travelling through Friesland, near the village of Oudehorne at the Kiekenberg nature reserve yesterday morning (6 December).
According to reports, the group discovered the monolith next to a frozen pond in the middle of a remote field.
And if that wasn't weird enough, the hikers said there were no footprints anywhere near it, despite the ground being frosty.
But while the others that have been found across the globe have been remarkably shiny, this one is slightly less so, it is said.
This latest finding comes just hours after another monolith was spotted on the Isle of Wight.
Locals on the island were dumbfounded when they stumbled across the mysterious sight on Compton Beach.
Tom Dunford was out walking his dog with his fiancée and his sister when he came across the object on Sunday morning (6 December).
Speaking to Sky News, the 29-year-old said he recognised it following recent sightings in other countries.
He said: "We went down the steps and to the right, about 100 yards in front us, we saw this big reflection of the sun.
"I knew about all the monolith stories recently, so I recognised it straight away."
After seeing photos of the structure on social media, Ami Blackburn went down with her partner and her son to have a look for herself.
The 31-year-old healthcare assistant said: "I thought I was very bizarre when I first saw it and immediately researched the ones found in Utah, California and Romania.
"We moved some of the sand from around the bottom and it's partly buried but we felt underneath and it was made of wood with mirrors stuck to the side.
"I'd love the idea of it being delivered by aliens but it's more than likely an unusual art project. But can 2020 get any weirder?"
So far no one knows where it has come from or why it is there - or how whoever installed it managed to carry the heavy object to the beach, which is only accessible by footpath.
And it comes days after similar objects were found in other countries - including one sighting of a monolith in the sky.
The original monolith found in Utah mysteriously disappeared, but hopefully the most recent ones on the Isle of Wight and the Netherlands will stick around long enough for us to find some answers.
