A mysterious monolith covered in coordinates has appeared in Adelaide after similar structures appeared across the US and Europe.
The latest monolith is a three-sided, three-metre-tall silver structure that was first sighted near the Seaford Train bridge in Noarlunga in Adelaide's southern suburbs at 6pm on Thursday.
Coordinates on the structure point to various locations across the globe, some of which are landmarks and some of which are seemingly random.
The top coordinate is a brownstone building in Brooklyn, New York, while the second location is the uninhabited island of Managaha in the Northern Mariana Islands, near Guam, in the Pacific Ocean.
Lastly, the bottom coordinates mark The Sphinx in Egypt's Al Giza Desert.
The monolith is located in Noarlunga, which is part of the City of Onkaparinga.
An Onkaparinga Council spokesman said he was only made aware of the structure after being contacted by the media and was currently investigating its origins.
A guerrilla marketing campaign
Shortly after the discovery of the monolith in Utah, additional monoliths which resembled the Utah monolith began appearing at various locations across the world. In some cases, local artists came forward to claim responsibility for them, citing the Utah monolith as their inspiration. Other monoliths were created and installed by small businesses for promotional purposes.

Wow, I knew they were popping up a lot but I did not know there were 70 of them. Obviously there are some copy cats, but the original one in Utah was there for several years apparently. It's shadow can be seen on google earth imagery.
