A small monolith only 2 metres high, hollow was found for a single day, before vanishing.
An Eyewitness reported:
I was there on 10th Dec. in the afternoon and workmen ( who were there also the day before working on the locks of the canal ) informed me that it had disappeared that night . Apparently this M had been supported by a metal pipe, which had carefully been connected to four small 'flippers' every 90 degrees. Obviously to make the M. stand better since the place where it was put was not flat but in a slope ..
Who or whatever took the Monolith away again obviously did a very thorough job .. with this metal pipe as a support system. Yet .. the Monolith was gone again when the workmen arrived in the morning of 10 12. The metal pipe was left though.
Notice the way they ( obviously worth a piece of chalk ) marked the place where the flippers were to be welded onto the pipe .. amazing ! hard to figure out ..
This monolith was discovered in a potato field in Baasrode, Belgium. Its construction seems amateuristic, and the monolith appears dented in many photographs. The farmer in whose field the monolith was found was contacted by an unknown caller the evening before and asked if it was allowed to place an object in his field as a joke. The farmer consented, without knowing what the object would be. The following day the monolith was discovered. Because of the call, the classification of this monolith is easily questionable.
To local news, the farmer explained that he was unaware of the hype surrounding the monoliths discovered elsewhere. The farmer thinks it is a fun distraction from coronavirus, he's pleasantly surprised by the attention from visitors that come to take pictures, but he ultimately thinks the monolith 'is just a stupid pole'.

Vadu beach monolith, 3 faced, about 2.5-3m tall, clear signs of vehicle tires around at the time of finding. Clean sides, edges are riveted. One side contains symbols from the Predator lore (Yautja alphabet), translation is incomplete as not all symbols match: ? A 5 H 35M 17S ? 8(or 2) 3 8(or 2) 8(or 2).
Almost positive that those are Star Coordinates. That first symbol is most likely an "R" so the first two letters would be Right Ascension.
RA 05H24M17S then the 52328 are the degrees.
First symbols could suggest a time 5 hours, 35 minutes 17 seconds.
Also it's been cited that the symbols could be the coordinates for Orion Nebula.
Orion Nebula Coordinates: Right ascension: 05h 35m 17s. Declination:−05° 23′ 28″.
