Another Monolith Found Near Church Ruins In Spain

Another Monolith Found Near Church Ruins In Spain

Yet another shiny monolith has been found, this time near the ruins of an old church in Spain.


Footage has been shared online showing an understandably confused villager approaching the strange object close to the Iglesia de Santiago (Santiago Church) in the municipality of Ayllon, Castile and Leon.

The video was reportedly taken on 6 December and the new monolith is one of more than half a dozen structures to have been found in the past few weeks.

Yesterday (7 December), a monolith was discovered in New Mexico.

According to reports, it was installed near Pan American Parkway and Montano, Albuquerque.

Following the find, Albuquerque's mayor Tim Keller shared a photo of it to his Twitter account.

He said: "We want to believe. #Monolith has been spotted in ABQ! What do you think it means?"

Several other monoliths have also been discovered in the UK, the US, Colombia, Romania, and the Netherlands.

No one knows where these structures have come from, who put them there, and for what reason.

Though a group of artists, called 'The Most Famous Artist art collective', have taken credit for the stunt.

On Sunday (6 December), a group of hikers stumbled across another monolith while travelling through Friesland, near the village of Oudehorne at the Kiekenberg nature reserve.

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 was slightly less so, it is said.

In what appears to be a bit of a purple patch for monoliths, another was also spotted on the Isle of Wight over the weekend.

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?"
