A mysterious metal monolith was discovered in Utah after public safety officers spotted the object during a routine wild mission.
The ministry said the helicopter crew, with the Utah Public Safety Aero Bureau, on Wednesday, helped Wildlife Resources count the big-horned sheep in southeastern Utah.
Pilot Bret Hutchings said one of the officers spotted the object in a remote part of the red rock – which looked like the scene right from “2001: Space Odyssey.”
“It was like,” Húúúúúúúúúúúúúúú, héééééééééééééééééééééééééééééééééééééééééééé! And I was like, “We.” And he says, “There’s this thing there – we have to look!” “Hutchings told CNN’s subsidiary, KSL.” We accidentally flew right over the top.
Hutchings said the origin of the silver metal monolith remained a mystery, but it seemed to be a “new wave” art installation that stood between “10 and 12 feet high”.
“It is illegal to install structures or arts in federally managed public spaces without permission, no matter what planet they come from,” the Utah Department of Public Security said in a statement issued Monday.
According to the class, it is not clear who or what installed the monolith, and for security reasons, the exact location of the object will not be revealed.
They added that the Office of Land Management will decide whether further investigation is warranted.
