Monolith found in Utah wilderness a puzzling mystery

Scientists Find Mysterious Metal Monolith in Utah Desert

The structure, estimated at between 10 feet and 12 feet high, was found by state wildlife employees counting sheep from a helicopter.

The agency added that if people decide to venture to the undisclosed and remote location they "may become stranded and require rescue".

Well, it turns out our wishes might have come true, because an inexplicable metal monolith has been found in the Utah desert by a helicopter crew.

Imposing black monoliths created by an unseen alien species appear in the movie, based on the writing of novelist Arthur C Clarke. Some users drew comparisons with the monolith that featured in Stanley Kubrick's sci-fi epic, '2001: A Space Odyssey, ' in which a group of apes encounter a giant slab. But alien jokes aside, there was genuine concern that perhaps it was part of a legitimate scientific experiment. "Are they bouncing satellites off it?" "I$3 f one of us suddenly disappears, then I guess the rest of us make a run for it", pilot Bret Hutchings told NBC affiliate KSL TV.

The taskforce had been deployed to count big horn sheep.

And there it was - in the middle of the red rock was a shiny, silver metal monolith sticking out of the ground.

Whether there are faces or not, the metallic monolith is weird enough on its own.

Some said the monolith was comparable to the plank structures of artist John McCracken, who lived in New Mexico and NY until his death in 2011.

The world was enraptured by the discovery of Stonehenge in 1901, a prehistoric structure of monoliths in the United Kingdom, but a new monolith in the USA might be more intriguing.

A Utah Department of Public Safety statement revealed there was no indication of who could have left the structure in that particular location.

The federal Bureau of Land Management has taken over the investigation and will determine if something needs to be done, according to the agency. It's never aliens. Stop saying it's aliens. You bet your alien-loving ass I did. We wouldn't want you to get covid-19, a disease that has so far afflicted over 59 million humans and killed 1.39 million on this stupid planet of ours.

Installing such structures, for art and whatnot, is illegal without prior federal authorization on federally managed public lands - although it would be easy enough to do so in such a far-fetched region. On second thought, just vaporise us if you need to.
