I interacted with a Monolith and accidentally chose the wrong option (not the option that helps you locate a Portal).

Now I can't interact with it, and my navigation beacon isn't locating any more Monoliths.

Is there another Monolith in this system I can locate and use to find the local Portal?

I am especially curious because I see that the NMS Wiki post for Portals starts with this description:

Portals are structures in No Man's Sky that can be found on all celestial bodies of a star system, like Planets or their Moons. There is always one portal on each.

I have found a lot of information on the internet to be out of date when it comes to post-NEXT features, so I guess as a sub-question:

Is there still 1 Portal per celestial body?

It would make sense to me that if there was a Portal on each celestial body there would be at least 1 Monolith for each, right? But I am in a 2-body system, with only one Monolith being revealed.

    Monoliths are quite easy to meet by just flying around (mods to disable ship hud and fade of terrain change helps). So there are definitely many monolith per planet. As for portal - wiki claim there is only one per planet and I don't think there is a point to have more or less. I am playing NEXT myself currently, it doesn't seems to change since previous update. Regarding visited monolith, many things in this game resets, I looted visited crashed freighters and pods several time. Give it enough time (play in other systems) and try again. – Sinatr Aug 29 '18 at 14:26

There at least 3 monoliths per planet. I use my Nomad exocraft to scan for one, then fly to it with my ship, and repeat.
