The existence of aliens has long fascinated the internet, and the latest discovery deep in the Utah desert has left everyone wondering whether we’re truly alone or not…

And now some curious tourists have managed to track it down …

Whether or not aliens exist seems to plague the minds of certain members of society, and it’s really the not knowing that keeps them so intrigued.

For many, the feeling that we aren’t totally alone in the big universe can be rather a comforting point of view.

Many who do believe in extraterrestrial beings tend to be painted as quacks and conspiracy theorists – which is actually kind of unfair.

And the worst part? Well, it almost seems as though we’ll never end up getting a straight answer to the question!

The US Air facility, colloquially termed Area 51, is a disused facility that was likely once used for testing experimental air vehicles. The intense level of secrecy surrounding the area has led many to believe that there’s something sketchy about it, however.

The intense level of secrecy surrounding the area has led many to believe that it’s in some way related to alien life and unidentified flying objects.

Many others believe that it is an area of government secrets, but, likely, of a more boring and administrative variety.

After Utah’s Department of Public Safety found something pretty otherworldly.

And quickly took an extraterrestrial turn.

The Utah Department of Public Safety took a helicopter over the desert when the strange sighting took place on Wednesday.

Which is a routine check they do every so often, when they noticed a strange-looking object on the ground.

“One of the biologists … spotted it, and we just happened to fly directly over the top of it,” pilot Bret Hutchings said.

And there it was.

Hutchings said it was easily “between 10 and twelve feet high.”

But instead, placed there on purpose.

Still, Hutchings thinks the object was more than likely placed there by a human, rather than an extraterrestrial.

In reference to the 1968 film where a large black monolith appears to study early civilization.

“No matter what planet you’re from,” they said in a statement released Monday.

As “it is not yet clear who, or what put the monolith there,” DPS said.

But some eager tourists have managed to track down the mystery object …

In spite of the location being undisclosed, this couldn’t stop people searching for it …

The pics are absolutely epic.

Although we might be a little too scared.
