Move aside COVID-19, there’s a new global phenomenon spreading across the globe: monoliths! These strange sheet metal obelisk structures have mysteriously started appearing in random locations worldwide, and guess what? Calgary is one of the latest cities to get one!

Each monolith is made of long vertical slabs of metal and is generally around 10–12 ft tall. The first pillar was spotted in Utah in November 2020, with several more popping up in every continent shortly thereafter.
This new monolith just outside of Calgary seems to have been first discovered by Noelle Cameron while driving south on Alberta’s Highway 22 near the Old Man River Crossing.
Many theories are floating around about these bizarre structures, including that they are the work of aliens. The monoliths tend to disappear without a trace just as mysteriously as they arrived, so it is difficult to determine exactly who (or what) put them there.
Who knows how long this one in Calgary will stick around.
