Bizarre Monolith Discovered in Remote Utah, No Bones or Apes in Sight
Something strange is going on in remote southern Utah.
Last week, wildlife officials were out flying over the desert in a helicopter, counting bighorn sheep, when something out of this world appeared among the red rock. Shiny, clearly unnatural, straight and uniform, not things made in nature. They alighted nearby to take a look.
There, standing straight from the ground, was a 10-foot monolith.
The officials walked around the object, touched it, saw their reflections in the mirror-smooth surface, probably said hilarious things like “My god, it’s full of stars.”
They aren’t revealing it’s exact location, other than to say it’s way, way out there. They don’t want people getting hurt trying to find it.
Who or what put it there and how remain a total mystery.
“I’m assuming it’s some new wave artist or something or, you know, somebody that was a big 2001: A Space Odyssey fan,” said Bret Hutchings, who flew the helicopter. “That’s been about the strangest thing that I’ve come across out there in all my years of flying.”
