UPDATE:4chan has discovered the location of the Utah monolith. It sat there for over 4 years unnoticed.
As if 2020 couldn’t get any more bizarre, a mysterious Space Odyssey-style metal monolith has been discovered in a remote area of the Utah desert.
While state workers were counting bighorn sheep from a helicopter, they spotted something out of place – a 12 feet tall metal monolith that had been installed in a secluded area of rock.
The Utah Department of Public Safety said the object was found in a “very remote” area of the desert, deliberately withholding its location to prevent people from attempting to visit.
“It is illegal to install structures or art without authorization on federally managed public lands, no matter what planet you’re from,” said the department’s statement. SEE VIDEO AND PHOTOS OF THE OBJECT
