Officials from Utah Department of Public Safety and Utah Division of Wildlife Resource were counting bighorn sheep in a remote region of the state’s southern desert when they came across a 12-foot tall metallic monolith that looked like something out of a Stanley Kubrick film.
KSL reports: “[Pilot Bret] Hutchings said it didn’t look like it was dropped into the ground from above. It was firmly planted there. ‘We were, like, thinking is this something NASA stuck up there or something. Are they bouncing satellites off it or something?’ Hutchings questioned. That said, the crew decided it didn’t appear there was any scientific purpose to it. Hutchings said it looked as if it was manmade – perhaps more of an art form than any kind of alien lifeform.”
