UTAH, Nov. 23, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — A bizarre discovery in Utah’s rugged red rock country has mystery buffs across the country scratching their heads.
According Utah’s Department of Public Safety, its Aero Bureau, also known as the chopper team, encountered a strange metal monolith, approximately 12 feet tall, in one of the most remote stretches of the state.
“On Nov. 18, the Utah Department of Public Safety Aero Bureau was working with the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources to conduct a count of big horn sheep in a portion of southeastern Utah,” said a news release.
“While on this mission, they spotted an unusual object and landed nearby to investigate further.”
The crew members found a metal monolith installed in the ground at the base cliff in a giant cliff.
The crew said there was no obvious indication of who might have put it there.
“The exact location of the installation is not being disclosed since it is in a very remote area and if individuals were to attempt to visit the area, there is a significant possibility they may become stranded and require rescue,” the news release said.
“It is illegal to install structures or art without authorization on federally managed public lands, no matter what planet you’re from.”
