November 25 – Recently, Utah officials found a mysterious huge piece of metal in remote areas of the southeastern part of the state while on duty. No one knows who put the stone here when and how. Officials pointed out that it was illegal to place stones in the area.
Last week, Utah Department of Public Safety officers found the huge metal block from a helicopter. “It was the strangest thing I’ve ever encountered in my flight career,” said helicopter pilot Brett Hutchins.
“The metal block appears to be 10 to 12 feet (about 3 to 3.6 m) tall, and it looks like it was placed there, not thrown out of the air,” Hutchins said.
Officials reportedly pointed out that the placement of metal blocks was illegal. “It is illegal to install buildings or works of art on federally administered public lands without authorization,” the Utah Department of Public Safety said in a statement. No matter what planet it comes from.”
During routine inspections, staff of the Utah Department of Public Security and Wildlife Resources found the metal boulder of unknown origin from the air. The exact location of the metal was not publicly disclosed.
The department also asked questions on social networking sites: “We stumbled upon this (metal block) in a remote place, buried deep in a rock. I’m very curious. What the hell is this? Does anyone know?”
Hutchins pointed out that in the classic science fiction film 2001 Space Odyssey, a huge black stone appeared. “I guess it could be some new wave artist or someone else [made it],” he said, and this guy is a huge fan of the movie.
In view of the possibility that tourists want to find out, state officials decided not to disclose the exact location of the boulder. The Utah Department of Public Safety said in a statement that it is located in a remote place, and if someone tries to explore, “they are likely to be trapped there and need rescue”.
At present, the Utah Land Administration is assessing whether further investigation is necessary.
