"It was not there yesterday morning since I go every day for morning walks," said Lerin to Narcity.

Earlier this month, a Winnipeg local spotted a similar monolith, however, it didn't take long for the structure to suddenly disappear. 

"Not sure if it was parks officials or aliens," he tweeted.

Days later, photos of a large monolith in Lethbridge, Alberta were shared on social media.

The monolith saga began with two sightings in the Utah desert, followed by another one on a Romanian hillside. 

One was also found in the city of Ahmedabad in India today, according to India Today. The mysterious rectangle also features symbols and numbers on its surface.
