As the "Utah Department of Public Safety" (UDPS) reported on November 23, 2020, one of their helicopters was on November 18 for the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (UDWR) in southern Utah to count the population of wild billy goats . Suddenly the crew of the helicopter discovered an "object of unknown origin" on the ground that apparently did not belong there. The discovery seemed so unusual to the helicopter crew that they decided to land and an on-site inspection.
In their report, the explorers estimate the height of the "mysterious metal obelisk" at 3-3.5 meters. Instead of simply being thrown here or parked here, it is specifically set into the ground. While the officials initially thought of an instrument from NASA, a detailed assessment showed that the object apparently "had no scientific use". Rather, the UDPs suspected, it was probably some form of art and speculated about a reminiscence of the science fiction cinema classic "2001: A Space Odyssey".
Meanwhile: The responsible local authority announced on November 28th that the object had been removed by an unknown party. We received reports that a person or group removed it on the evening of November 27."
