The monolith that became a virus after it mysteriously appeared on a Romanian hillside “disappeared”.
Local media reported that the strange structure had been removed on Sunday night, but it is unclear who took it over. According to Jurnalfm, the locals saw “strange lights” in the area.
The Romanian monolith appeared on the Batca Domnei plateau, writes the Romanian press Ziar Piatra Neamt. The 9.8-foot-tall, 13.1-meter-high metal structure is located near the ancient Petrodava Fortress, the output said.
The Romanian monolith soon became a virus after another monolith was discovered in a distant Utah desert.

It sparked a lot of guesswork about what it was and how it got here.
The strange Utah structure was also removed by an unknown party, the state’s Office of Land Management confirmed.
During Saturday’s site visit, a team of an office said an unknown person or group had removed the illegally installed structure, which they call a “monolith” on the evening of November 27th.
The material, estimated to be between 10 feet and 12 feet in height and thought to be some kind of metal, was discovered by state wildlife employees while counting sheep from a helicopter. The structure provoked comparisons with a similar-looking board in Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 film, 2001: Space Odyssey.
Despite attempts to keep the location of the mysterious object a secret, reports of people visiting the site soon appeared.

Officials said visitors who flooded the site parked on the vegetation and left human waste behind, noted that there were no toilets or parking on the undeveloped area.

Police are not launching a serious investigation into the mysterious silver monolith. The San Juan County sheriff said the office does not have the resources to devote a lot of time and energy to taking the object. At first, it was illegal because it was placed amidst red rocks in a remote section of public spaces without permission. Its creator remains a mystery.
