Biologists Discover Unexplained Steel Monolith In Utah Desert

A group of biologists made an unexpected discovery in the middle of the Utah desert – a mysterious metal monolith.

The 10-foot structure was found by researchers on a mission to count the local sheep population. No one knows how long the monolith has been there or who installed it – but they were likely a fan of the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Officials say they won’t release the exact location of the monolith because it’s in a “very remote area” that could be potentially dangerous for visitors.

How do you think the monolith got there? Was it an artist’s prank, or an alien visit?
