A biologist was studying a flock of sheep on a flyby in a remote region of Utah, in the United States, when he spotted a mysterious metal monolith.
The structure, about 3.6 meters high, was embedded in the ground – there is still no indication of who took it there.
“It was one of the strangest things I’ve come across in all these years as a pilot,” said Bret Hutchings, who was flying the helicopter at the time
He said, in an interview with the local television network, that when the biologist saw the structure from above, he released one: ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa, turn around, turn around!’

“And I said, ‘What is it?’ To which he said: ‘There is a business there – we have to go and see what it is! “, Said Hutchings during the interview.
The pilot speculates that the monolith may have been installed “by some new wave artist” or a fan of the 2001 film: A Space Odyssey (1968), directed by Stanley Kubrick. The adaptation of Arthur C. Clarke’s work exhibits large black monoliths inserted by alien beings.
The Utah Department of Public Safety’s air security office released images of the gleaming metal structure in a statement last week and said authorities were investigating the object’s origin.
“It is illegal to install structures or art objects without authorization on federal lands, no matter which planet you come from,” the agency said, in a good-humored way.
The exact location of the monolith was not informed to prevent it from starting to attract any explorers. The sheep that ended up giving rise to the episode live in different parts of the south of the state.

So far, no one has claimed authorship of the “work”.
To try to speed up the search, the Utah Highway Patrol shared a post with the monolith image on Instagram and the caption: “Curious minds want to know – what the hell is that? Anyone?”
Most of the answers bet on the theory that speculates that the monolith may be an artistic installation – some even pointed out that it resembles the minimalist work of the artist John McCracken.
