What the heck is this?

All of a sudden Mutinus caninus or Stinkhorn mushrooms have popped up all over my yard, they seem to pop up in a matter of a few hours? There is nothing at midnight then 10-15 of them by 6am? is this possible???

the underground mycelium colony is fruiting because conditions are right. Each set of mushrooms each night is called a flush and usually a colony can only flush several times in a row before it's totally spent and dies.

But yea, they grow FAST++ when they're flushing.
