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-59360 (edit)
Location Description: A 3m x 3m x 3m area. Despite the surrounding temperature, there will always be 30 cm of snow on the ground. The snow cannot be brought out of the area.
Date of Containment: 2016-02-04
Location: Mojave Desert, Nevada, United States
Security Protocol: A 4m x 4m x 4m steel room has been set up around the perimeter.


Unexplained Location UE-655616 (edit)
Location Description: Kydatogorsk is a nonexistant town in the Ural mountains. It appears in encyclopedias and travelogues, and under questioning the authors recall writing the descriptions but not researching or visiting the area. It is shown on geological and topographic maps, but not satellite images.
Date of Containment: Partial containment since 1976
Location: Documents of the region
Security Protocol: Agents placed in publishing companies. Anti-memetic strategies under consideration.


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-732624 (edit)
Location Description: A small shed where a strong odor of decaying bodies is permanently present. The odor can not be perceived outside the shed, and does not cling to clothing or other objects after they have been removed from the location.
Date of Containment: 2008-09-06
Location: 4.3 km directly north of ████████, Sweden
Security Protocol: Location purchased by the Foundation and walls constructed. Perimeter alarms installed on 09/24/2008.


Unexplained Location UE-865776 (edit)
Location Description: A circular area approximately 46 meters in diameter. Gravity in this area does not conform to regular laws or models, lessening and partially reversing at points.
Date of Containment: 1945-██-██
Location: Santa Cruz, California
Security Protocol: Due to public popularity at the time of the confirmation of anomalous activity, location permitted to continue operating as "The Mystery Spot", a local tourist attraction. Every several years, theories are to be leaked through the scientific community as to possible causes for the anomaly, such as optical illusions or geographical positioning.


Unexplained Location UE-613904 (edit)
Location Description: A street where any noise perceived by humans or electronic devices is followed exactly two seconds afterwards by an exact copy of the sound. The echo effect does not extend to sounds caused by the echo effect.
Date of Containment: ████-██-██
Location: ██████ ██, Surat, India.
Security Protocol: Road blocked off and removed from maps.


Unexplained Location UE-405888 (edit)
Location Description: An island in the South Pacific Ocean, independent of other island chains. Highest elevation 2054 m, area 12.5 km2. Known to have regular volcanic eruptions, but the resulting flow is a water solution of sodium acetate, carbon dioxide, and FD&C Red 40. A sound similar to that of a child's laughter can be heard during eruption events.
Date of Containment: ████-██-██
Location: ██°██' S, ███°██' E
Security Protocol: Area stricken from maps and patrolled to prevent people from approaching. Due to the remoteness of the anomaly, further action is unneeded.


Unexplained Location UE-254016 (edit)
Location Description: A river which is missing a six meter segment. Testing has indicated that water will simply disappear at one point (Point Alpha) and reappear at another (Point Beta), with no evidence that the river exists in the six meter segment between the two points.
Date of Containment: ████-██-██
Location: ████████, India
Security Protocol: The area has been surrounded by an electric fence, with signs warning against trespassing.
Note: Analysis of the water flowing from Point Beta has revealed trace amounts of dust which appear to have originated on Earth's moon. MTF Gamma-4 is to be tasked with searching for any evidence of the missing segment on the Moon.


Unexplained Location UE-463104 (edit)
Location Description: A 6 square foot patch of land that is always shaded. It appears in the middle of a field with no sign of any objects that obstruct light. It does not shade people who enter, and only affects the ground.
Date of Containment: 19██-09-27
Location: Granville, Ohio, USA
Security Protocol: A Foundation-managed horse farm is currently surrounding the anomaly. A sign stating it is private property is kept outside of it.


Unexplained Location UE-479680 (edit)
Location Description: A housing estate measuring 50m x 35m, designed by Architect ███ █████ in 1986 but never inhabited. It is constructed in five spatial dimensions, explorations revealing paradoxical but consistent geometry.
Date of Containment: 1987-02-06
Location: ██████████, Scotland
Security Protocol: Purchased, and infrasonic repellents installed. Demolition request denied. ███ █████ now designated POI-5536.
