Mysterious Metal Monolith Discovered Deep In The Desert By A Helicopter Crew
A Utah helicopter crew discovered a strange metal monolith in the desert.
- The crew was helping the Division of Wildlife Resources count bighorn sheep in southeastern Utah last Wednesday.
- A mysterious metal monolith was spotted deep in the desert.
- Pilot Bret Hutchings believes it is most likely the work of an artist.
A helicopter crew in Utah was left amazed when they came across a mysterious sculpture.
Last Wednesday, officers from the Utah Department of Public Safety’s Aero Bureau were counting bighorn sheep when they spotted a mysterious metal monolith in the desert. According to The Guardian, the metal structure appeared to be firmly planted in the ground and is estimated to be between 10ft and 12ft high. Pilot Bret Hutchings spoke to KSLTV and shared the crew’s experience, “One of the biologists is the one who spotted it and we just happened to fly directly over the top of it. He was like, ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa, turn around, turn around!’ And I was like, ‘what.’ And he’s like, ‘There’s this thing back there – we’ve got to go look at it!’”

The crew tried to guess what the mysterious monolith could be.
Some claimed that the sculpture resembled something straight out of 2001: A Space Odyssey and that the object is probably linked to extraterrestrial life. Others seemed to think it was associated with NASA and the pilot believes that the sculpture is most likely the work of an artist. “We were kind of joking around that if one of us suddenly disappears, then the rest of us make a run for it,” Hutchings said. “We were, like, thinking is this something NASA stuck up there or something. Are they bouncing satellites off it or something? […] I’m assuming it’s some new wave artist or something or, you know, somebody that was a big (2001: A Space Odyssey) fan.” Saying this, Hutchings referred to the following scene from the movie:
The location of the mysterious monolith has not been disclosed and it is not yet clear where it has come from, reported CNN. Furthermore, the Bureau of Land Management is still expected to decide whether an investigation into the matter is necessary.
