Aliens or Photoshop? Monolith mystery reaches San Antonio

The monolith mystery has reached San Antonio.

On Nov. 18, ities in Utah spotted a gleaming block of metal in a remote red rock cove. The 10-foot-tall monolith disappeared days later, but a similar object soon turned up on a plateau in Romania.

Officials could offer no explanation for the sci-fi structures. But there's a new investigator on the case.

Spurs Coyote, the team's official mascot, shared a photo of a third monolith. This one was placed — by aliens or Photoshop — on the AT&T Center court.

"NEW: Mysterious monolith appears in San Antonio after Utah one vanishes," the Coyote wrote on Twitter.

The first monolith was found by Utah ities counting bighorn sheep on a remote 4x4 road southwest of Moab. Ross Bernards, a photographer, told FOX13 he watched four people dismantle the structure — which he said was "clearly an art piece by someone" — Friday night.

"It is illegal to install structures or art without ization on federally managed public lands," said the Utah Department of Public Safety, "no matter what planet you're from."

On Thursday, another monolith turned up outside the Romanian city of Piatra Neamt. The Daily Mail reported officials were "looking into the strange appearance" of the glass object, which faces a local landmark known as the Holy Mountain.

No word on whether the San Antonio monolith affected Gregg Popovich's preparations.

The Spurs open their preseason slate at 亚洲游国际集团home against Oklahoma City on Dec. 12.
