According to, unexplained metal objects, aka monoliths, have mysteriously popped up everywhere from Southern California to Utah's red-rock dessert to Romania.

But the most recent one popped up right here in New England at a quarry in Quincy, Massachusetts.

It was discovered this past Saturday morning at the Quincy Quarries Reservation and seemed to disappear as quickly as it came, the news station reported.

The article describes the monolith to look like a crop circle made in the snow. It's all very '2001: A Space Odyssey', if you ask me.

Do you think this means there is intelligent life on other planets trying to contact us? Or do you think it's just a group of cheeky teenagers trying to freak us out?

If it's the latter then mission accomplished!
