Item #: SCP-XXXX
Object Class: Safe
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained in a 65m by 65m room with a 35m ceiling standard object containment door and walls. SCP-XXXX is to be placed on a one (one) meter high pedestal. No room is to be constructed under the containment room for SCP-XXXX for at least Thirty-four meters (34m). Thermal imaging cameras should be mounted on each wall and used for observation as standard security cameras are rendered useless by SCP-XXXX's effect. A four-point safety harness and 35.5 meters of nylon rope should be attached to an electric winch for testing purposes.
Description: SCP-XXXX is an object of unknown shape, weight, mass, etc, that absorbs all light around it within a 30 meter radius. SCP-XXXX its self is about the size of a base ball but can not be described in any other way than being compared to the size of other objects. The closer a subject gets to it the more spectrum of light SCP-XXXX absorbs when subjects reach a distance of about 10 cm away from SCP-XXXX it absorbs the infrared spectrum; thus making thermal imaging cameras ideal. When SCP-XXXX is approached, subject reports feelings of intense fear, anxiety, paranoia, and foreboding; there is also a feeling that to touch SCP-XXXX would allow them to "escape" the darkness. To date, all subjects appear to be too fear and panic stricken to touch SCP-XXXX and what happens when SCP-XXXX is touched remains unknown. SCP-XXXX also appears to radiate about 0.35 Lux, providing the minimum amount of light needed for SCP-XXXX to be hardly seen; however this is an insufficient amount of light to provide any sort of photograph. Subjects descriptions of SCP-XXXX often contradict each-other's. Tests with night vision goggles have failed, the cause of which has been determined that there is not enough visual spectrum light for them to function properly.
