If you drop a mysterious metal monolith in the middle of the desert, they will come.
Daring travelers have toured a remote part of Utah to see firsthand a 10-foot-tall monolith that has been planted in the ground amid a rock formation.
The structure – which appears as an art project in homage to an action tool in the film « 2001 A Space Odyssey » – was first discovered last week by wildlife officials who counted sheep from a helicopter.
Workers shared photos of their bizarre discovery but did not reveal their coordinates in hopes to deter people from searching for the structure and getting lost in the remote area.
Your caution could not deter determined investigators from searching satellite maps in an attempt to solve the case and locate the structure 16 miles southwest of Moab.
David Surber, 33, a retired U.S. Army infantryman, drove six hours through the night to find him after reading about his alleged coordinates on Reddit.
He posted a video titled, “Great trip to the monolith today. No matter who built it or where it comes from. It was a positive escape from today’s world. Some for many people to collect and enjoy together. ”
After making the discovery, Surber said he was only alone in the dark about 10 minutes before other intrepid adventurers arrived to find the exact location.
« I knew people would visit the area as soon as the place became public, » Slane told the BBC. “I got some angry news for revealing the place. If I hadn’t found it, someone else would probably have found it soon enough. ”
It is still unknown who made and planted the monolith and why – but Google Earth imagery shows that it appeared sometime between August 2015 and October 2016.
