A mysterious monolith, which is believed to be some kind of metal, was discovered in the remote parts of Utah on Wednesday, fueling speculation on what the object was or how it got there, according to reports. The structure, estimated at between 10 feet and 12 feet high, was found by state wildlife employees counting sheep from a helicopter.

The object drew comparisons to Stanley Kubrick's famed 1968 film "2001: A Space Odyssey," which saw a group of apes encounter a similar-looking giant slab.

"It’s the on-off button for the planet," one user wrote.

It could be a stainless-steel sarcophagus for Donald Trump's conscience.

The cross section appears to be triangular in shape.

That would make the monolith a type of triangular column.

The Utah Department of Public Safety (DPS) said in a statement that it would not be revealing the exact location of the monolith for public safety reasons. Installing structures without permission on federally managed public lands is illegal, it added.

So I guess I wonder if it was shipped in from Dubai.

Office for Metropolitan Architecture [OMA] and Amsterdam-based landscape and interior design firm Inside Outside have designed a new monument comprised of 1,680 triangular shaped aluminum columns on on Jumeirah Beach in Dubai.

It is not buried, it is planted.
Sending out roots.

The shiny metal part above ground is both an antenna and a solar collector.

You seem to know an awful lot about it Sylkat.

No doubt you are now being monitored by the NSA.

I mean more than usual.

But while the monolith remains an irresistible mystery, its location has turned into a lesson on how to find almost anything online, including an enigmatic metal sculpture. Within hours, someone had inevitably opened a Reddit forum to locate the monolith. And less than a day after the sculpture’s existence was revealed, someone seems to have actually done it.

The monolith-hunting process is impressive in its own right. And the evidence for its location, put forward by Reddit user Tim Slane, is strong. Slane pinpointed the coordinates of a small redstone canyon with a narrow gap that closely matches the social media photos. Satellite images from Google Earth reveal something in the middle: a hard-to-see object that casts a sharp, tall, and narrow shadow across the ground. The object seems relatively new. Google Earth photos from 2013 and mid-2015 show no trace of it, but it’s clearly visible by October of 2016, when the surrounding ground has also been apparently cleared of scrub. App developer Bruno Philipe posted Apple Maps imagery of the canyon, but the monolith area was shrouded in shadow.

So the appearance of this monolith has resulted in internet witchcraft being performed to scry its location.

Now they done it. The ancient alien lizard people explanation is debunked before anyone had to chance to advance it :mrgreen:
