MILWAUKEE -- The appearance of a rather large egg at downtown Milwaukee's Red Arrow Park has southeastern Wisconsin baffled.

Why is it there? What does it mean? And what about that hashtag on the crate underneath it - "#BigIsHere"?

Most people on social media are speculating it has something to do with the Milwaukee Public Museum's upcoming exhibit - "Ultimate Dinosaurs." The museum has indeed been discussing it on its Twitter page.

The sudden appearance of the egg didn't go without notice, as many posted photos of the installation online along with speculation as to what it may represent:

We'll have to be patient and wait for the museum to reveal its secrets - or perhaps for the egg to hatch.
