Item #: SCP-XXXX
Object Class: Euclid
Special Containment Procedures: A perimeter of 6 kilometers is to be maintained at all times around SCP-XXXX and all space agencies capable of landing on the Lunar surface are to be monitored for proposals to visit the Fra Mauro Formation. Any mission which may bring a manned capsule or unmanned satellite within the 6 kilometer perimeter of SCP-XXXX are to be delayed indefinitely, cancelled or sabotaged at the Commands discretion. The anomalous nature of the area allows for regular scrutiny by professional and amateur astronomers which should not be discouraged, to minimize suspicion.
All reconnaissance of SCP-XXXX should only be undertaken by probes remotely controlled from Lunar Unit-10, subdivision of Command-██. Any probe entered into the anomaly should be built to withstand micrometeoroids and orbital debris less than 1 centimeter in size, whose velocities generally range between 3 and 18 kilometers per second. However larger debris are consistently recorded and should be avoided unless they are the primary objective of an experiment. It should be noted that Lunar Unit-10 is accountable for the loss of each probe.
Any sentient SCP distinct from SCP-XXXX found within the perimeter is not to be interacted with or made aware of the Foundations presence. 05 Command is currently reviewing possible plans to use the anomaly to dispose of Safe and Euclid objects.
Description: SCP-XXXX is a 4 kilometer spherical spacial anomaly, located at selenographic latitude ██████°S and longitude ██████°W. This area appears to be entirely uniform with the rest of the surface of the Moon from the outside, with spetrostropic readings consistent with what is to be expected. SCP-XXXX enters an active state when any manned or unmanned spacecraft, lunar vehicle or persons wearing space suits passes through its perimeter, seamlessly transporting them to a parallel universe designated SCP-XXXX-A. Once the object or objects reaches this 4 kilometer boundary again, they reenter the baseline universe. Experimentation has shown that mundane household objects or materials do not activate SCP-XXXX’s effects.
SCP-XXXX-A is an alternate Lunar surface, situated in exactly the same place as the anomaly sits in our reality. Since its discovery in 19XX, the surface has consistently been littered with various remains of animal and humanoid life, vehicles, building materials and miscellaneous waste produced by a world consistent with Earth in the late 1960s. For a full review of such items, see Document-992. At the very centre of this area, crushed under the remains of a diesel train identified as the Trans Europ Express ████████ █ █/█, is a Lunar Module believed to be the make and style consistent with the Apollo 13 mission launched by Nasa on April 11th, 1970.
Currently two crew members of the Apollo 13 mission, Commander ████ █████ and ████ ███████ have been located on the lunar surface. It is believed the third man, ████ █████ was destroyed in the cataclysmic event which created the debris field.
SCP-XXXX-A most remarkable feature is that on April 16th, 1970, Earth was utterly annihilated through an as of yet unknown process, in such a way that it left no field of asteroids but still ejected the atmosphere, biosphere and man made structures on its surface. In its place now exists a permanent and bright pink glowing light. Study of the anomaly, designated SCP-XXXX-B, is increasingly difficult because of the number of obscuring objects in the way. It has been noted that it somehow supports a similar amount of gravitational pull on the alternate Moon, suggesting whatever propelled the objects on the surface away from Earth did so with enough energy for escape velocity.
Personnel made to view the source of light have described a great deal of unease, even when they are uninformed of the nature of the image. Others have described in increasingly distressing repetitions that they see something growing or moving in the light which goes on to become a slight but persistent paranoia about the stability of our own planet.
The only recovered materials pertaining to the moment of destruction are the damaged remains of an Apollo Lunar Television Camera, currently stored at Command-██. See Document-1004.
