Officers from the Utah Department of Public Safety's Aero Bureau were flying by helicopter last Wednesday, helping the Division of Wildlife Resources count bighorn sheep in southeastern Utah, when they spotted something that seemed right out of "2001: A Space Odyssey.

In the same way a mysterious monolith appeared in rural Utah, it just as quickly and inexplicably disappeared, according to Utah's Bureau of Land Management.

"We have received credible reports that the illegally installed structure, referred to as the 'monolith' has been removed from Bureau of Land Management (BLM) public lands by an unknown party," the Bureau of Land Management said in a statement posted to Facebook on Saturday.

The bureau said it did not remove the monolith, citing the structure as private property. It also said it doesn't investigate matters involving private property and said any investigation would be handed by the local sheriff's office.

The monolith was reportedly removed on Friday evening, according to the statement. Images now show a cairn, a stack or mound of stones built as a memorial or landmark, where the monolith once stood.

On Nov. 18, while conducting a routine wildlife mission counting bighorn sheep in the southeastern part of the state, a helicopter crew with the Utah Department of Public Safety Aero Bureau discovered the perplexing structure.

"He was like, 'Whoa, whoa, whoa, turn around, turn around!' And I was like, 'What.' And he's like, 'There's this thing back there — we've got to go look at it!'" Hutchings told NBC affiliate KSL. "We just happened to fly directly over the top of it.”

The structure was approximately "10 and 12 feet high," according to Hutchings, who said he believed the structure was a “new wave” art installation.

"Although we can’t comment on active investigations, the Bureau of Land Management would like to remind public land visitors that using, occupying, or developing the public lands or their resources without a required authorization is illegal, no matter what planet you are from," the Utah Department of Public Safety said in a statement after the structure was discovered.
