Metal monolith, discovered in the Utah desert; Original article by Alessandro Brizzi.

A mysterious metal monolith was discovered deep in the Utah desert, what began as a routine operation to monitor wildlife took an Alien turn to say the least for the Utah Department of Public Safety after it stumbled upon a mysterious monolith in the middle of rural Utah.

On Wednesday, agents from the Utah Department of Public Safety’s Aero Bureau were helicopter flying over a specific area of the desert in support of the Division of Wildlife Resources to monitor Bighorn sheep in southeastern Utah when they saw something that looked like being out of a science fiction movie like “2001: A Space Odyssey”. Bighorn sheep, also known as Rocky Mountain sheep in southeastern Utah, live in some of the most rugged and remote areas of Utah and survive in hostile climatic conditions for this reason they are kept under observation by biologists. And it was one of them who saw the strange structure and started emphatically saying to the pilot, “Wait, wait, wait, wait, turn around, turn around!”, The driver, Bret Hutchings, obviously didn’t understand what was going on. so he decided to go and see.

And there it was, in the center of the red rock there was a monolith of shiny silver metal sticking out of the ground, Hutchings calculated that its height is about 3 meters, also the fact that it is so shiny is in stark contrast to the huge red rocks surrounding, a truly surreal sight. Obviously, alien intervention was immediately excluded, it does not seem to have fallen by chance from the sky, it seemed rather that it had been specially installed by someone. Pilot Hutchings’ version is that according to him it is highly likely that it was an artist who installed it in that spot rather than an alien, although the two continued to joke that “if one disappeared suddenly, the rest would be due would run away immediately “. In fact, Hutchings continued, “I think he was a new wave artist or something like that or a big fan of ‘2001: A Space Odyssey”, referring to a scene from the 1968 film where a black monolith appears, strange object has also been compared to the sculptures of the artist John McCracken, who lived in New Mexico and New York until his death in 2011.

However, it is illegal to install unauthorized structures or works of art on public land “no matter what planet it comes from,” the Utah Department of Public Safety said Monday in a statement. The position of the monolith has not been revealed to prevent curious or inexperienced explorers from attempting to search for the curious monolith remaining stuck in that portion of hostile nature.
