Utah government officials attempting to keep track of bighorn sheep populations came across an art installation, an ominous cult object, or a joke by a Stanley Kubrick fan, depending on the size and shape of your tin foil hat. Department of Public Safety surveyors discovered a massive metal monolith deep in the Utah desert earlier this week.

The over 10-foot-tall structure was first spotted by a helicopter pilot helping to count said sheep. The man-made (?) object was planted in the rock and its metallic sides made it stand out significantly against the backdrop of orange rock.

The state's Aero Bureau of DPS shared a photo of the strange object to their Instagram, in a post that has since gone viral.
