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-269520 (edit)
Location Description: A hotel. Sounds generated in rooms repeat exactly 871 days later.
Date of Containment: 1956-12-23
Location: Rooms 331-338, Apex Hotel, Cairo
Security Protocol: Site purchased. Unaffected rooms used as accommodation for visiting agents.


Unexplained Location UE-676480 (edit)
Location Description: An area of roughly 7km2 in which all precipitation takes the form of specimens of the Indian Red Scorpion (Hottentotta tamulus). Specimens are nonanomalous and instances which survive the fall typically perish due to inclement weather conditions.
Date of Containment: 2007-10-17
Location: ██ km south of Area-██, Ellsworth Land, Antarctica
Security Protocol: Due to its isolated location and relatively rare occurrence, minimal security is necessary. Outpost A██-02 has been established to allow for remote monitoring.


Unexplained Location UE-395744 (edit)
Location Description: A room on ███████ building of the Centre Europeene des Recherches Nuckleaires (CERN) . The door does not lead to the normal room's interior, but to the sun's core, with all of its normal characteristics (very high temperature, gaseous nature, high thermonuclear activity, etc.) The room's exterior walls do not seem to be affected in any way by the conditions on the inside, nor does the door or the rest of the building.
Date of Containment: 3-21-20██
Location: Room ██, ███████ building, CERN, France-Switzerland borders
Security Protocol: Normal door replaced with a reinforced titanium security blast door, windows covered with bricks, cover story about "the room being contaminated during a chemical experiment" leaked to the public
Note: Plans to send a probe through the door have been rejected by the Overseer Council.


Unexplained Location UE-392528 (edit)
Location Description: A roughly spherical area with a radius of 42 meters where oxide layers on metals are unable to exist. All metallic surfaces that enter the area will have their oxide layers removed immediately.
Date of Containment: ████-██-██
Location: Low-Earth orbit, 800 kilometers above Tokyo, Japan
Security Protocol: Embedded Foundation agents are to reroute satellites and space missions away from the area to avoid cold welding of equipment.


Unexplained Location UE-349744 (edit)
Location Description: Pedestrian crossing on █████ Street, a high-traffic road adjacent to █████ █████ Primary School. Anomaly is observed when crossing the road at the location and looking eastward.
If a car is approaching, an indistinct humanoid figure manifests approximately 300 meters from the location. The figure runs onto the road in front of the car's headlights and reacts as if about to be run over, then disappears upon impact. Drivers do not see or react to the figure.
Anomaly generally reported in low-light conditions (early morning, twilight, rainy weather, etc.). Exact frequency of occurrence is unknown. The highest number of sightings in a day is ███ on 1999-██-██, when █████ █████ students left the school grounds en masse to investigate rumours of a 'ghost'. Resulting disruption to school activities and traffic incidents brought the location to the Foundation's attention.
Date of Containment: 2000-██-██
Location: Perth, Australia
Security Protocol: Pedestrian crossing moved ███ meters from prior location under cover story of road improvements. Students and staff given counseling, medical attention and Class-B amnestics where necessary; drivers compensated for damage. No further sightings reported.


Unexplained Location UE-465248 (edit)
Location Description: An area of farmland spreading across 100 acres. If one were to enter the area, they will suffer a severe third degree burn on any exposed part of the skin, regardless of temperature, weather, and health of the person.
Date of Containment: 1998-5-29
Location: Tifton, ████, USA.
Security Protocol: A two story house has been built in the middle of the land while the surrounding area is fenced off with a sign saying: "TRESPASSERS WILL BE SHOT."


Unexplained Location UE-259376 (edit)
Location Description: An outdoor lavatory that whenever a person exits All Star by Smash Mouth will begin playing from an unknown source.
Date of Containment: 2001-06-21
Location: ██████, CA, USA
Security Protocol: None: see note.
Note: Due to swampland making it difficult to travel the surrounding area any security protocol has been deemed unnecessary.


Unexplained Location UE-540112 (edit)
Location Description: A roughly spheroid area, 10 m in radius, in which no water exists. A 5 m tall statue, depicting a humanoid with lepidopteran features, is located in its exact center.
Date of Containment: ████-██-██
Location: 5000 m below sea level, ██°██'██.█"N ██°██'██.██"E
Security Protocol: Due to its isolated location, minimal security is necessary. Any expeditions to this depth of the ocean are to be redirected at least one kilometer away.


Unexplained Location UE-833712 (edit)
Location Description: An In-N-Out Burger restaurant where the burgers seem to always be pink (uncooked), no matter how long they’ve been cooked for. Investigation of the kitchen has revealed nothing wrong with any of the kitchen appliances.
Date of Containment: ████-██-██
Location: A town in California.
Security Protocol: Restaurant shut down under guise of bugs in the kitchen. All workers were given amnestics. The customers naturally forgot about the anomaly on their own.
Note: All In-N-Outs should be placed under surveillance in the event that another one has the same (or a similar) anomaly.


Unexplained Location UE-521392 (edit)
Location Description: An abandoned building where every five years, approximately 1,000 non-anomalous typewriters from the early 1900's materialize. All textual documentation about the building appears in 12pt Pica font.
Date of Containment: 2016-02-08
Location: ████████
Security Protocol: The building has been restored. Typewriters are sold online from a closed internet connection after being checked for anomalies.
