As quickly as it appeared, it has disappeared. That monolith in remote Utah......is GONE. Apparently no one has any idea who put it there and now, no one has any idea where it's gone. I still say aliens were using it to communicate, but of course people will call me crazy (I'm half serious.....maybe 45% serious.....at the very least, I'm 10% serious)
There's probably a perfectly rational explanation for this, in fact some artist probably placed it there hoping for the exactly what's happening now, BUT I prefer to believe it's a communication device for aliens of some sort
State employees were in a helicopter over a remote part of Utah helping wildlife resource officers count bighorn sheep, but what they discovered was definitely not an animal, and some people think it might not even be from this world. They spotted a mysterious monolith that measures about ten to 12 feet high, seemingly planted in the ground. The object was either made from metal or covered in a reflective surface so that, along with it's straight edges, it definitely does not fit in to the red rocks around it.
The Department of Public Safety shared images of both the monolith and some bighorn sheep.
Don't go thinking that aliens placed the object in the middle of nowhere. The pilot said that it looks manmade and that it was likely planted in the ground, as opposed to getting lodged in after falling from sky. He stated, "I'm assuming it's some new wave artist or something or, you know, somebody that was a big2001: A Space Odysseyfan."
Hutchings might be on to something as the piece looks strikinglysimilar to work by artistJohn McCracken, who lived in New Mexico as well as New York until his death in 2011.David Zwirner, who runs McCracken's gallery, has not yet commented.
Utah officials are stumped as to what the monolith is and who put it there, but in a press release, noted that it "is illegal to install structures or art without authorization on federally managed public lands, no matter what planet you're from."
They are looking into if it needs further investigation but if you want to see it, you are out of luck. They are not going to reveal where it is since it is "in a very remote area and if individuals were to attempt to visit the area, there is a significant possibility they may become stranded and require rescue." However, you can check out more photos and videos from the monolithhere.
