Following the sudden appearance and disappearance of mysterious metal monoliths in the US, Romania and Colombia, a monolith has been found in the Netherlands.
Walkers in a nature reserve near Oudehorne, Friesland made the surprising discovery on Sunday morning. Unlike the previous monoliths, the structure that has appeared in the Netherlands is not made of a shiny material.
The Dutch organisation for the management of forestries and national reserves, Staatsbosbeheer, tells NU.nl that they have no idea where the construction came from.

While the appearance of the object is a mystery, a representative for the Staatsbosbeheer tells NU.nl that the arrival of the monolith in the Netherlands is “not a big problem relatively.” The appearance of the object will be extensively examined today.
A New Year’s Eve stunt
When asked by AD, walkers in the area said they believe the construction is simply a New Year’s Eve stunt. It is believed the monoliths are a reference to similar structures that appear and disappear in the film, 2001: A Space Odyssey.
In A Space Odyssey, the structures are built by unseen extra terrestrial creatures and appear and disappear in different regions of the world.
