Just a few months after a mysterious monolith appeared and then disappeared in southern Utah, a new one has emerged.

A metal monolith was found in the Three Peaks recreation area in Cedar City, per a report by FOX 13. The Iron County structure seems to be made up of three steel panels put together to form a triangular prism.

But the especially curious aspect of this monolith is what’s reportedly inside it.

One of the panels contains a button that, when pressed, opens a drawer and illuminates an Egyptian-looking eye with a blue LED light. There’s a message at the back of the drawer as well.

Also inside the drawer were multiple copper strips, each inscribed with the following message: “HUMAN MAY 4TH | 37.3179604 | 114.9597835.”
