Log of Unexplained Locations

Foreword: This page is to be devoted to the documentation of low threat anomalous locations which have been discovered by the SCP Foundation over the years. Although all locations listed in this document warrant securing and cover-up measures, none of them are closely enough tied to an underlying anomalous cause or considered a high enough containment or research priority to warrant full Special Containment Procedure documentation. This list may be used as a resource should knowledge of these locations become useful or necessary in the future.

Unexplained Location UE-948144 (edit)
Location Description: An area of roughly 0.6km² wherein which any moving solid object produces a faded and intangible afterimage which persists for █ minutes and ██ seconds following initial apparition.
Date of Containment: 03/12/1977
Location: ██°██' N, ███°██' E, Mongolia
Security Protocol: Secured as part of nearby Site-██. Area used as firing range by on-site security and assigned MTF units for training purposes.


Unexplained Location UE-737984 (edit)
Location Description: A circular area spanning approximately 3 square kilometers in the Atacama Desert. Time inside the area seems to flow significantly faster than the outside. All outside objects that enter the area will start to age rapidly. However, the ground itself and the organisms already present inside the area seem to be immune to this effect.

A civilian bus that entered the location prior to containment.

The location was discovered when the above photograph, along with the news of an identical bus going missing, started to circulate. Initial containment was achieved quickly, due to the recent breakthrough in visual amnestics technology that allowed the utilization and mass deployment of digital SVM1 images. Current security protocols were put to action after successful removal and replacement of all relevant information on the internet.
Date of Containment: 2019-01-02
Location: Atacama Desert, Chile
Security Protocol: Foundation agents are patrolling the area to deter any civilian attempts to enter.
Amendment: This location is currently being used as a testing site for prototype antimemetic shielding technology. Due to the remoteness and low danger of the area, it has been approved for this use.


Unexplained Location UE-275952 (edit)
Location Description: A walkway where walking and running is impossible. All attemps to either walk or run will be held back by an unknown force. Currently, the only known means of moving on the walkway are hopping and rolling on one’s side.
Date of Containment: ████-██-██
Location: Ulleung-do, South Korea
Security Protocol: A small Foundation outpost was built over the walkway. It is currently intact and is occasionally used for recreational purposes.


Unexplained Location UE-351888 (edit)
Location Description: A building that causes all animals that enter it to turn into a small peach. The peaches are retrievable from the outside, since the effect only manifests upon complete entry. Notably, decay of the peaches occur significantly slower when inside the building. They are otherwise non-anomalous.
Date of Containment: ████-██-██
Location: Johns Creek, Georgia
Security Protocol: The building has been purchased through front companies. One (1) security guard is to monitor the area at any given time.


Unexplained Location UE-889856 (edit)
Location Description: A five (5) story building with a glass exterior. Despite being entirely dry and otherwise non-anomalous, the building appears to be a large aquarium containing several sentient aquatic life from the outside.
Date of Containment: ████-██-██
Location: Kyoto, Japan
Security Protocol: The building has been covered with a cloth and is currently functioning as a Foundation outpost.


Unexplained Location UE-527824 (edit)
Location Description: A book that is permanently fixed to the ground. The book appears to be thicker than it is wide, and scans have concluded that the entire book consists of approximately 10,000,000 pages. Only the front 1,000 pages are accessible from the surface. The contents of the book appear to be made of nonsensical combinations of English words.
Date of Containment: ████-██-██
Location: Edmonton, Canada
Security Protocol: The book was covered with a rock and bolted to the ground to deter civilian access.


Unexplained Location UE-603760 (edit)
Location Description: A large metal plate fixed to the surface of the moon. The text “Cute Rock in the Sky” is present on the plate.
Apollo 13 was planned to investigate this location as a part of their mission. However, due to an anomalous influence by an unknown force, the mission was aborted and the vessel was forced to return. The incident was covered up as an oxygen leak, and all associated personnel were amnesticized.
Date of Containment: ████-██-██
Location: Apollo 13 proposed landing site
Security Protocol: The location is to be expunged on photographs. No further action is to take place.


Unexplained Location UE-141728 (edit)
Location Description: A large metallic sphere with an approximate radius of 74m protruding from the side of a mountain. Due to its antimemetic properties, directly viewing the sphere will cause an inability to notice the anomaly, and said viewer will consider the sphere a natural part of the mountain. However, the effect does not extend to photographs of the area.
Date of Containment: ████-██-██
Location: Indonesia
Security Protocol: Covered with additional antimemetic shielding to make the effect extend to photographs. Existing records were expunged from the internet.


Unexplained Location UE-679696 (edit)
Location Description: A diverging railroad track with a lever-operated switch. When more than 5 people enter the area around the track, the people will instantly demanifest and remanifest in the following positions:
  • The person nearest to the lever will remanifest next to the lever.
  • One other person will be tied to the branching track.
  • All others will be tied to the main track.

After completing manifestation, an unidentified trolley will manifest on the track before the switch and will start moving forwards at a speed that is always fast enough to kill everyone tied to the main track.
Apparently, in cases where more than 10 people are tied to the main track, pulling the lever will derail the trolley.
Date of Containment: ████-██-██
Location: Oxford, United Kindom
Security Protocol: The area has been closed off to the public, and the track was jammed to prevent further casualties.


Unexplained Location UE-393600 (edit)
Location Description: A large pit filled with approximately two metric tons of confetti. The confetti collectively sing the song “Happy Birthday to You” when unobserved.
Date of Containment: ████-██-██
Location: Dangjin, South Korea
Security Protocol: The surrounding land was purchased by a front company. Due to its proximity with Site-101, the location is occasionally used for staff birthday parties.
