Another shiny metal monolith has appeared, but this time it's in the United Kingdom.

The tall structures have been baffling people all around the world since they appear to emerge out of nowhere.

The latest mysterious monolith was found by beachgoers on the shores of the Isle of Wight and appears to be buried in the sand.

Local Tom Dunford was walking the dog with his fiancee and sister on Compton Beach, where the structure was found, when they saw the reflective object ahead of them.

"I knew about all the monolith stories recently, so I recognised it straight away," he told Sky News.

The reflective structures are similar to those seen in Stanley Kubrick's 1969 sci-fi film 2001: A Space Odyssey which were placed by an advanced alien species to assist lesser races in their evolution.

The monolith Dunford saw was around 10 feet tall and "really reflective", he said.

"When we came back around half an hour later there were more dog walkers crowding around it - probably about a dozen. There's been quite a few people flocking down to see it today."

The first monolith appeared in Utah in a remote part of the state last month, however, it randomly disappeared a week later. Another was also found in California but was later replaced with a large wooden cross.

Another metal structure appeared in Romania's mountainous Neamt county, however, it vanished days later.
