(KTNV) — A mysterious monolith has been discovered in a remote area of Utah.

The discovery was made by a helicopter crew on Nov. 18 during a mission to count big horn sheep in a portion of southeastern Utah, according to the Utah Department of Public Safety.

At this time, it is not known who installed the metal monolith. It is illegal to install structures of art without permission on federally-managed public lands.

The monolith is about 10-feet tall and has four sides. The surface is shiny but does not appear to be reflective.

The exact location of the monolith is not being disclosed because of its remote location and possible danger it would pose for people who attempt to visit it.

The Bureau of Land Management will decide if further investigation of the monolith is needed.
