Deep inside the Utah desert The Utah Department of Public Safety helicopter was guiding the Utah Division of Wildlife Resource officials for the counting of bighorn sheep in southeastern Utah and suddenly they identified something mysterious and shocking. The identified structure in the middle of the desert was a tall metal monolith. The discovery was made on 18th November 2020 Wednesday.
As the crew flew over the desert, one of the biologists noticed it and later the team investigated over it. Pilot Bret Hutchings said “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 helicopter landed and then a closer approach was taken towards the structure to observe it. It was shocking for their eyes.
According to Hutchings, it was about 10 to 12 feet high. He said, “We were kind of joking around that if one of us suddenly disappears, then the rest of us make a run for it.”
No conclusion was found about the observed structure. Nobody could understand why the structure was planted in such an area with red rocks around it but according to Hutchings, it was not dropped from the sky. It was planted in that place.
Hutchings questioned “We were, like, thinking is this something NASA stuck up there or something. Are they bouncing satellites off it or something?”
It was also assumed that a big fan of (2001: A Space Odyssey) may have planted it, as there is a related scene in the movie same as this one. Check out the video clip below from the movie scene that relates the same as this structure.
The team of researchers left with pictures and videos. According to Hutchings, he has seen several unusual things in his whole career but has never observed something like this. His statement to the ksltv was “That’s been about the strangest thing that I’ve come across out there in all my years of flying.”
The team decided not to share the exact location of the structure as many people would try to find it out and analyze it themselves out of curiosity which is not at all safe as mentioned by the DPS.
Planting such structures for art or any other reason without authorization is illegal, although it would be very easy to plant such structures in such a region.
The official statement from the Bureau of Land Management as updated on 24/11/2020 states that “Although we can’t comment on active investigations, the Bureau of Land Management would like to remind public land visitors that using, occupying, or developing the public lands or their resources without a required authorization is illegal, no matter what planet you are from.”
