What is the mysterious structure discovered in the Utah desert?
Closed

A big metallic structure appeared in the Utah desert and no one knows how it ended up there. The mysterious monolith was spotted from a helicopter in the most remote part of the state.

On 18 November, a crew studying bighorn sheep spotted the strange object. While investigating it, they discovered that the object is 10-12 feet high, with a three-sided, stainless-steel structure.

The Utah DPS declared that they have no clue how the big metallic structure ended up “in the middle of the remote red rock country”.

The discovery comes after Pentagon released a series of videos with an unidentified aerial phenomena as “scientists announced that they had discovered the possibility of life on Venus."

Although this discovery coincides with some important news, like the ones just mentioned, people took to Twitter to share their reactions, with one tweeting “NOT NOW, MYSTERIOUS METAL MONOLITH!"

All sorts of assumptions appeared: some said it was aliens who were responsible, others tried to use science to give it purpose. But the most logical explanation is that an artist put it there. One of the investigators declared: “I’m assuming it’s some new wave artist or something or, you know, somebody that was a big [2001: A Space Odyssey] fan,” – as the big metallic structure can be compared to the black monolith from the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey, by Stanley Kubrick.

How do you think the big metallic structure ended up in the Utah desert? Do you believe that there is a scientific explanation for this, or it is just an artist trying to express something?

I have to agree, I do not think it is something strange like aliens or science. It is an artist that put it there for some reason or reaction.

It looks like a piece metal that broke off from something else. May be part of a rocket, a lot of the Mars test rockets fail to make it in space.

It highly likely that someone deliberately placed the structure there for controversy and conspiracy theories.

It is art. Metal in its natural form is surrounded by dirt and rock or has to be melted and formed
