A seemingly mysterious object appeared at the Tesla Supercharger in London, Ontario, a couple of days ago. Twitter user TeslaLondon snapped a photo and took to Twitter to share this mysterious, space-like object.

It had many people speculating, but several Twitter users figured out that it wasn’t Elon’s Martian antennae, but just a boring old 5G tower.

A few Twitter users thought it may be a stack of batteries with a Starlink WiFi receiver on top. And Elon Musk did mention to me that he would start testing in the higher latitudes first — Canada is a much higher latitude than Baton Rouge.

However, it turned out not to be some mysterious obelisk. It’s a 5G cell tower from Landmark Dividend. A couple of other users shared a link from Landmark Dividend that confirmed this. What you are looking at is the Landmark Flexgrid Version 1.

Landmark Dividend, a company that specializes in the acquisition and development of property interest and infrastructure in wireless communication, digital infrastructure, and several other industries, launched its newest project, Landmark Vertex. Landmark Vertex is a wireless infrastructure with the goal of helping wireless carriers, municipalities, and other users to meet their growing wireless infrastructure demands.

The company aims to create a 5G infrastructure solution that includes rapid colocation for 4G and 5G with excellent operator experience and the ability to provide for capacity and growth. Its website shares that it creates value for stadiums and arenas, transit and urban rail stations, EV charging, energy management, and storage and high-end commercial locations.

The Vertex Macro V1 includes a dense mini-macro class, 40W output, 9 radio bays, 9 antenna bays, custom-designed LED luminaries, 4G/5G max concealment, and dedicated 5G integrated radio antenna bays. The tower was newly installed on May 11 and 12, according to this tweet below which was dated May 12.

Part of the company’s goal includes EV charging stations — the company wants to develop EV infrastructure. One of the company’s goals is to create a new technology that will eliminate the need for charging cables, ports, or door releases. “All that the driver must do is park within six inches of a specially designed charging pad, wait for a light to turn green, and then they’re done,” states the website.

It will be interesting to see how more Tesla owners react to these 5G cell towers popping up in their local Superchargers. Some of the replies to Tesla London were pretty funny.

Honestly, if I was a Martian, I’d invade a nice lush, tropical paradise — just my 2.5 cents.
