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-544400 (edit)
Location Description: A mile-wide barren strip of beach on the north shore of Oʻahu. Upon human entry, said subject will inexplicably perform a "shaka" hand sign against their will. This effect remains in place until they leave the borders of the State of Hawaiʻi.
Date of Containment: ████-██-██
Location: Haleʻiwa, HI, USA
Security Protocol: Land area is closed to the public under the pretence that it is "private property".


Unexplained Location UE-124080 (edit)
Location Description: A large, fluffy area of land that can only be described as ‘fluffy’. The effect does not extend to dirt excavated from the area.
Date of Containment: ████-██-██
Location: Desert in Arizona
Security Protocol: Area covered with kittens in order to avoid suspicion.


Unexplained Location UE-621408 (edit)
Location Description: The kitchen of a McDonald's restaurant. All humans who enter the area spontaneously recite the recipe for the Big Mac sandwich in their native language, regardless of knowledge of the recipe or the sandwich itself.
Date of Containment: 1978-06-29
Location: Ohio, USA
Security Protocol: Building purchased by Foundation and closed to the public.


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-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-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-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-739056 (edit)
Location Description: Fifteen solitary confinement cells located within Block-█ of the █████-State Penitentiary which are unable to be illuminated by any known means.
Date of Containment: 19██-06-04
Location: █████, U.S.A.
Security Protocol: Site is currently under use by MTF-████ to hold persons of interest.
Note: None


Unexplained Location UE-350816 (edit)
Location Description: A large area situated between floors 3 and 5 of the ████ hospital in Daejeon, South Korea. The area can only be entered by activating all buttons simultaneously in any of the elevators in the hospital. Altitude comparisons between floors 3 and 5 suggest that the area is located in an extradimensional location. The inside of the area has different floor plans to that of the hospital, though the shape and size of the entire area is consistent with the actual hospital building. The area is composed of three rooms inside each other, forming ‘layers’. Each room is designated Layer 1 through Layer 3 from the outermost layer to the innermost one for the ease of description.
Layer 1: The walls of Layer 1 are coated thinly with an organic liquid, including the outer surfaces of elevator doors. Genetic material recovered from the substance has shown matches for multiple apian species. The floor and ceiling are composed of an anomalous beeswax-titanium alloy that has been proven to be bulletproof. The walls are composed of non-anomalous concrete, though small amounts of apian DNA has been recovered from samples. There is no furniture inside of Layer 1. The only light in Layer 1 comes from dim lightbulbs along the top of the walls, presumably powered by an anomalous source. The inside walls of Layer 1 have a total of 17 openings leading to Layer 2.
Layer 2: The floor and ceiling of Layer 2 is composed of a different beeswax-titanium alloy that emits a bright, yellow-tinted light. Spectrometric analysis has confirmed that the spectrum of the light emitted from the alloy matches no stable element or compound that occurs naturally, though it is possible to replicate the spectrum via engineered synthetic molecules. The walls of Layer 2 are composed of white concrete, and large depictions of bees and wasps are present on the surface. The pictures themselves have shown to be non-anomalous. A total of 17 plastic benches are present along the inside wall of Layer 2. The benches are composed of non-anomalous polyvinyl chloride(PVC), though the outside of their surfaces are coated with an organic liquid similar to those coating the walls of Layer 1. The benches are approximately 2m wide with small shelves, presumably used as tables, protruding from armrests on either side. The back panel of the benches are engraved with an unknown language, and a symbol resembling a bee is present in the center of every back panel. Notably, each bench engraving contains different text. The inside wall of Layer 2 is cylindrical, unlike the other walls, and two (2) openings are present on opposite sides of the wall leading into Layer 3.
Layer 3: Layer 3 is a large cylindrical room within the center of the area. It is illuminated only by a single bright light located in the center of the ceiling. The ceiling of Layer 3 is higher than those of the other two layers, and takes the shape of a hollow hemispherical dome. The walls, floor, and ceiling of Layer 3 are covered with a synthetic dark red velvet-like cloth. Analysis of samples revealed that the fur of the cloth is both genetically and structurally identical to the hair of a honeybee. In the center of Layer 3 is a white cylindrical pedestal composed of another bulletproof beeswax-titanium alloy. A single non-anomalous corpse of a honeybee is present on the center of the pedestal top, illuminated by the light above it.
Date of Containment: 2013-██-██
Location: ████ Hospital, Daejeon, South Korea
Security Protocol: Elevator software has been altered so that simultaneous activation of all buttons is impossible. One (1) assigned embedded Foundation agent is on standby to monitor the surrounding area.
Note: In many Asian hospitals, the fourth floor is intentionally omitted because the number four symbolizes ‘death’ in asian cultures.
