Just what was found in the UTAH desert ?

  • State workers in a helicopter noticed the shiny marker while flying overhead

  • About 10 to 12 feet tall, it's planted in the ground and not dropped from above

  • There are no identifying markings and no one has claimed responsibility

  • Utah has a history of 'land art' placed in the desert far from population centers

Is it the Art work of a Space Odyssey Fan ?

What do we know so far -

A crew with the state wildlife resources department was aboard a Utah Department of Public Safety helicopter when they spotted a mysterious monolith sticking out of the dirt last week.

About 10 to 12 feet tall, the shiny metal object was firmly planted in the ground, suggesting it wasn't just dropped from above.

The unlabeled object is located inside a red rock cove but, fearful amateurs could endanger themselves trying to get a closer look, the workers have withheld details about its exact location due to a surge of people wanting to locate the object.

Pilot Bret Hutchings told KSL-TV. '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!'

'We were thinking, Is this something NASA stuck up there or something? Are they bouncing satellites off it?' Hutchings said.

All jokes aside, Hutchings believes the structure is probably some kind of artwork.

'I'm assuming it's some new wave artist or something or, you know, somebody that was a big [2001: A Space Odyssey] fan,' he said.

No one has yet to come forward to claim responsibility or ownership of the object,

or the reasons why it has been placed in such a desolate random location as UTAH desert.

ART has been known to pop up in locations of the area with interesting claims also to increased UFO sightings and activity reported in the area to MUFON officially have increased over the last few years.
