1/5153 LEVEL 1/5153
Item #: SCP-5153

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-5153 is to be contained via a low-intensity disinformation campaign. Foundation scientists are to track and monitor all potential Near Earth Objects in search of SCP-5153. In the event that SCP-5153 is rediscovered, its trajectory and estimated time of arrival are to be tracked. SCP-5153 is not to be neutralized, as it does not pose a risk to both the continued survival of humanity and the Veil.

Description: SCP-5153 is a meteor measuring approximately thirteen kilometers across. Invariably, SCP-5153 will approach Earth, seemingly on a course to impact somewhere in Siberia. Despite this, SCP-5153 will demanifest when it is within fifteen kilometers from the ground, resulting in a large displacement of energy similar to an airburst explosion.

Addendum 5153.1: Confirmed Manifestations of SCP-5153.

Eight confirmed manifestations of SCP-5153 have occurred between 1908 and 2018, and Foundation astrophysicists are currently tracking a Near-Earth Object that is believed to be SCP-5153 which is on a course to impact in February of 2020.
