Mysterious Monolith found in Utah desert. Digital Sleuths Find Location

Two men working for the Utah Department of Public Safety were flying a helicopter to count sheep in the wilderness when they came across the monolith in a canyon likely near Moab, Utah. 


Nobody is asking the obvious: Did this object come from another planet?

What is 10’ tall polished, made of a steel-like metal alloy, triangular and firmly planted into a canyon somewhere in Southeastern Utah? 

It’s a monolith that is now making national headlines. Two men working for the Utah Department of Public Safety were flying a helicopter to count sheep in the wilderness when they came across the object in a canyon likely near Moab, Utah. 

“It’s the strangest thing I’ve come across out there in all my years of flying.” Said Bret Hutchings. “ He compared it to the monolith found in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001 Space Odyssey. “I’m assuming it’s some new wave artist or something. Or, you know somebody was a big ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ fan,” Hutchings said.

But different from Kubrick’s object — which in the film Kubrick said that he said it was a symbol for the dissemination of ideas and information to evolve the lifeforms in the universe— this object is shiny metal, but with a more matte finish.

The metal appears to be steel alloy and triangular from the top. Kubrick’s monolith was rectangular and black. 

If it was crafted on earth it was made by highly-trained, skilled professionals. The bevels on the sides show no weld marks and the difficulty in not only crafting the object but so firmly planting it into the canyon floor, would be a massive undertaking. 

Mysterious metal monolith discovered in rural Utah

The Bureau of Land Management has not commented as to if they plan to conduct studies on the object or bring in experts to examine the metal or the craftsmanship. But we would assume that an incident such as this would not be in the hand of the BLM to decide what, if anything should happen.

Gizmodo reports that since this discovery has gone viral digital sleuths were able to track down the flight paths of the pilots and find the object through Google Maps. The sleuths “found” the object south of Dead Horse Point near Moab. 

In the summer of 2017 HBO was filming the series Westworld in and around this same area. In Westworld portals that allowed characters to enter into the fictional worlds that had been designed (full of mean robots). The monolith might have been a prop from that series. 

Since the location of the object has been identified. It probably won’t be long until what the two officers were afraid of will happen. Somebody will go out and find the object and get lost, requiring a search and rescue. Maybe the aliens who installed the object will help those who get lost to find it.
