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-270592 (edit)
Location Description: The interior of an ████ brand wardrobe. This space has been revealed to be approximately 2500x bigger than would be expected given its exterior dimensions, and is inhabited by a number of species of saprophytic molds, believed to subsist on the wooden paneling bordering the area. This paneling is presumed to be of unlimited thickness, as borings have provided no reliable limit to its depth.
Date of Containment: 2017-03-██
Location: Determined to exist solely in extradimensional space. Wardrobe entrance relocated to Site-34.
Security Protocol: Due to the pathogenic nature of many fungi inside, entrance is restricted to personnel equipped with Mark-III respiration equipment. Currently used to hold non-perishable equipment.


Unexplained Location UE-754560 (edit)
Location Description: A circular crater containing two (2) large snakes of an unknown species, one significantly shorter than the other. The tails of the snakes are glued to the center of the crater and are therefore unable to move out of it. Both snakes slowly rotate clockwise inside the crater at constant speeds. The longer snake rotates once every hour, and the shorter snake rotates once every twelve (12) hours.
Date of Containment: 1972-04-27
Location: Apollo 17 landing site
Security Protocol: Information expunged from public records. Foundation web crawlers are monitoring various sources for civilian telescope footage of the area.


Unexplained Location UE-197872 (edit)
Location Description: A one-story ranch-style house. The walls of the house are integrated with a rudimentary circulatory and respiratory system; these systems maintain approximately 4000 human noses located on the walls. These noses have been observed inhaling and exhaling, and do not appear to require nutrition. DNA taken from the noses has not connected them with any person recorded in the Foundation genetic database.
Date of Containment: 2007-03-29
Location: Milton, Florida, United States
Security Protocol: The home has been purchased by a Foundation front company, and is currently inhabited by two security agents. Any unidentified persons approaching the house are to be apprehended, interviewed, and amnesticized.


Unexplained Location UE-175936 (edit)
Location Description: A spherical area 5 meters in diameter. Any human subjects located inside the sphere will experience visual hallucinations, viewing any space outside the sphere as a real-time view of the Martian sky and surface. All effects cease when the subject leaves the sphere.
Date of Containment: ████-██-██
Location: Cardiff, Wales.
Security Protocol: "Stars and Constellations Planetarium" front company constructed around the anomaly. Anomalous location contained in a "Staff Only" area.


Unexplained Location UE-735840 (edit)
Location Description: An underground hot spring with a constant surface temperature of approximately 98° Celsius. Of note is that the spring is not connected to any underground water system, and does not extend deeper than ~12 meters. The water in the spring is anomalously replenished at a rate of 0.3 cubic meters per minute if drained below normal water level. The spring is home to multiple previously-unknown non-anomalous species of thermophilic archaea.
Date of Containment: ████-██-██
Location: ████████, CO, USA
Security Protocol: The Foundation has purchased 24 acres of land surrounding the hot spring and built a private cabin there, with the cave entrance disguised with a storage shed. The property has been fenced off from backcountry hiking and skiing, and two personnel are stationed at the cabin to perform research on the spring's native microbial life.


Unexplained Location UE-750272 (edit)
Location Description: An approximately circular area of land, with a diameter measuring ~4.5 km. The area will appear on any digital geographic modelling system as a real-time representation of an inhabited village, with a confirmed population in excess of 2000 individual members. All inhabitants seem to be fully sentient, but unaware of the nature of their existence.
Date of Containment: ████-██-██
Location: Herefordshire, England
Security Protocol: The area around the location is to be heavily monitored, and the area itself has been designated as landfill and waste processing. All major digital maps have been altered to avoid rendering the location.


Unexplained Location UE-883424 (edit)
Location Description: An irregular volume ~500x300x250m, where only medieval French can be spoken. Attempts to speak other languages result in inability to exhale.
Date of Containment: 2001-07-03
Location: ~1500m above 23°N, 271°W
Security Protocol: Air flights redirected to avoid anomaly.


Unexplained Location UE-740128 (edit)
Location Description: A one story rental log cabin that causes people inside to forget important items such as wallets and phones. which leads to the person who left the item to return and then forget another item causing subjects to return over and over until they are reminded about their lost object
Date of Containment: ████-██-2017
Location: █████ , Michigan, USA
Security Protocol: The Cabin is to remain closed at all times, with cameras around the building in order to prevent break-ins
Note: the longer a subject spends in the cabin the more likely they are to forget something


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-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.
