The crew said there was no immediate explanation for who installed the monolith.

Officials said in the Monday statement that they are not disclosing its exact location because "it is in a very remote area and if individuals were to attempt to visit the area, there is a significant possibility they may become stranded and require rescue."

Officials also joked that it is illegal in Utah to install structures or art "without authorization on federally managed public lands, no matter what planet you're from."

The Bureau of Land Management is set to determine if an additional investigation into the object will be required.

State officials also shared videos of workers discovering the monolith in the Monday statement.

Pilot Bret Hutchings told CNN affiliate KSL that a biologist initially spotted the bizarre object, which is estimated to be between 10 and 12 feet high.

"We were kind of joking around that if one of us suddenly disappears, then the rest of us make a run for it," Hutchings told the outlet.

"I'm assuming it's some new wave artist or something or, you know, somebody that was a big ("2001: A Space Odyssey") fan," he continued, referencing a scene in the 1968 film that features a large black monolith.

The Hill has reached out to the Bureau of Land Management for comment.
