Metal monolith found by helicopter crew in Utah desert

Recommended Posts





A strange metal monolith has been discovered in the Utah desert by a helicopter crew, leaving local authorities baffled.

Wildlife officials spotted the "unusual" object while counting sheep during a flyover in a remote south-eastern area of the US state.

They said the structure had been planted in the ground between red rock.

There was no indication who installed the monolith, which was about 10 to 12ft (3.6m) tall.

In an interview with local news channel KSLTV, the helicopter pilot, Bret Hutchings, said: "That's been about the strangest thing that I've come across out there in all my years of flying."


Well... This is weird. Saw it crop up on a few oddball sites yesterday so didn't think too much about it... But today it's on BBC and some others. 

What do you suppose this is? Someone's art, or is 2020 now the year we make contact? 😉

I read that some bikers or hikers or tourists of some sort removed it.  WTH.... Can't we have something mysterious without some moron destroying it?
I considered it art, something quirky to talk about, and some environmentalist says it is littering.  So tired of people.
