Mysterious monolith, previously found in Turkey’s Gobeklitepe, reappears in SE Turkey

DIYARBAKIR, TURKEY - AUGUST 30: A mysterious metal monolith, that appeared in southeastern Sanliurfa province earlier this year and was later revealed to be part of the unveiling of the Turkey's new national space program, has popped up this time in southeastern Diyarbakir province. The metal slab was carved with words in Gokturk, the Old Turkic script, which means, “Look at the sky, see the moon”. The monolith, which was placed near the Zerzevan Castle for the promotion of an spatial event set to be held in September in Diyarbakir, was greeted with astonishment by the local people. The "2021 International Diyarbakir Zerzevan Sky Observation Event" will be held on Sept. 2-4 at the 3,000-year-old Zerzevan Castle, which is on the tentative list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The monolith, which is considered as a symbolic reflection of Turkey's vision for space, will remain in the region during the event. -Mysterious monolith found in Turkey’s Gobeklitepe The 3-meter-tall (9.8 foot) metal pillar was found on Feb. 5 in the middle of an empty field in Gobeklitepe, home to the world’s oldest temple site, in Sanliurfa province.
