The Mysterious Las Vegas Monolith: What We Know About Its Removal By Police

In an unusual chain of events, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department announced this past week about the removal of a baffling monolith from a mountain range to the north of the city. This tangible monolith added to the roster of the strange structures that have been appearing in the United States, sparking curiosity concerning the origin and purpose of such structures.

Key Facts and Speculation

The cylindrical monolith, standing at a height of 6’4”, was retrieved this past Thursday. The local police cited public safety and environmental concerns as the reasons behind the removal. The particular area is located near Gass Peak, a mountain that forms part of Nevada’s Desert National Wildlife Refuge.

Investigation reports have revealed that the monolith was made out of reflective sheet metal, which was folded into a triangular structure embedded into the ground using rebar and concrete. Following its removal, the structure is currently stored away at an undisclosed location as authorities try to determine how to properly dispose of it. The police department announced that there would be no investigations into how the monolith found its way to Gass Peak.

The Growing Trend of Monoliths

The monolith phenomenon sparked off in 2020, with the first famous monolith gaining viral online attention after being spotted in Utah in November of that year. The 10-feet tall structure only lasted for 10 days after being discovered before it was dismantled. One of the most recent sightings this year occurred in March, where a Welsh builder named Craig Muir stumbled upon another monolith during a hike. The seclusion of the location drove him to believe that the object must have been placed by either people or a helicopter. Online speculation ventured theories attributing the origin of these structures to extraterrestrial beings, pranksters, or even artists.

Nonetheless, a conceptual art group known as The Most Famous Artist claimed responsibility for the appearance of monoliths in the United Kingdom, Romania, and Utah, but several cynics believed that the group was simply taking advantage of the fascination brewing over such phenomena. It’s worth noting that the group had previously sold what they referred to as “authentic” alien monoliths on its platform for a whopping $45,000.

Monolith Tracker has Detected Numerous Monoliths Since 2020

For those interested in following these peculiar appearances, Monolith Tracker, an unofficial platform permitting users to report findings of similar structures, has tracked the existence of 245 monoliths since 2020. However, the validity of these objects is still ambiguous as it remains unclear how many of them have been authenticated by law enforcement.

In an intriguing turn of events, it was also found that the Las Vegas monolith was first spotted in December 2020, hence, suggesting that it may have been sitting in the mountain range for years prior to its confiscation. Monolith Tracker linked to a 2020 YouTube video showing aerial views of what appeared to be the concurrent monolith seized by the police recently.

Final Thoughts

Neglecting the thrill akin to such novel findings, these installations seem to pose certain environmental and safety concerns leading to their swift removal by law enforcement. Continually, it could be speculated that the increasing frequency of these findings may lead to stricter regulations in the near future.

While the fascination continues concerning these mysterious monoliths, so do the explorations into their origin and purpose. Perhaps we will have the answers soon, but until then, the speculation surrounding the strange monolith greeted by humanity is indeed, a plot twist in real life.
