Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “2020 goes ‘full Kubrick’: Mysterious MONOLITH discovered in Utah desert (PHOTOS, VIDEO)”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

State workers were conducting a count of bighorn sheep in a remote part of southeastern Utah last week when they spotted a strange object from their helicopter. Upon closer inspection, the officials realized that they had chanced upon a metal monolith that had been installed in a secluded area of red rock. 

The Utah Department of Public Safety released photographs and videos of their staff marveling at the object, which is estimated to be between 10-12 feet (3-3.6 meters) in height. In a press release, the department said that it would not reveal the location of the monolith because it’s in a “very remote” area and they feared individuals could require rescue if they attempted to reach it on their own. Although clearly amused by their discovery, the department also reminded the public that it’s unlawful to tinker with protected lands.

The mysterious structure caused a sensation on social media, with Twitter users pointing to the infamous monolith from Stanley Kubrick’s ‘2012: A Space Odyssey’.
