A mysterious monolith has reportedly surfaced in Turkey, prompting authorities to launch an investigation into the object.
The roughly 10-foot tall metal monolith was found Friday in Sanliurfa province inscribed with the message “look at the sky, see the moon,” in old Trukish script, according to the Associated Press (AP).
The monolith was found near Gobekli Tepe, a UNESCO World Heritage site which is home to megalithic structures that date back to the 10th millennium B.C., according to the report.
