Utah helicopter crew discovers mysterious metal structure deep in the desert

What started as routine wildlife assistance took an extraterrestrial turn for Utah’s Department of Public Safety after officers stumbled upon a mysterious monolith in the middle of rural Utah.

Officers from the Utah Department of Public Safety’s Aero Bureau were flying by helicopter last Wednesday, helping the Division of Wildlife Resources count bighorn sheep in southeastern Utah, when they spotted something that seemed right out of “2001: A Space Odyssey.”

“One of the biologists … spotted it, and we just happened to fly directly over the top of it,” pilot Bret Hutchings told CNN affiliate KSL.

“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!’”

And there it was – in the middle of the red rock was a shiny, silver metal monolith sticking out of the ground.

Hutchings guessed it was between three and four metres high.
