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.
– Doctor ██████ █████, Head of Containment, Site ██

Notes: Am I the only one who thinks this could be used to aid attempts to survive on Mars by future astronauts and colonists? Should probably be kept in mind for the future.
- Dr. Muldoon

Date of Containment: 27/2/2001
Location: ████████, South Sudan, Africa.
Security Protocol: Surrounding area is fenced off, with two security cameras located at one of the fences, facing the windowed wall.

Security Protocol: None is currently needed, as residents of Michigan view it as a result of the state's unpredictable weather fluctuations.
Location Description: Research Site-288. All computers within the site that are capable of carrying the Windows 7 operation system will have their current operation system transferred to Windows 7 over the course of 2 days.
Date of Containment: 26/10/2009

Location Description: A set of approximately 78 stars in unknown locations that form a constellation that resembles the Foundation's main symbol (A large circle, with three distinct arrows pointing to the center). Despite this, the Founder and O5 Command has stated on multiple occasions that they designed the symbol before discovering this constellation.
Date of Containment: 02/23/2015
Location: Directly south of the Gemini constellation.
Security Protocol: Due to the extremely abstract nature of its depiction, no attempts have been made to attempt to contain the constellation.

This space has been revealed to be approximately 2500x bigger than would be expected given its exterior dimensions, and is inhabited by a number of species of saprophytic molds, believed to subsist on the wooden paneling bordering the area. This paneling is presumed to be of unlimited thickness, as borings have provided no reliable limit to its depth.
Date of Containment: ██/03/2017
Location: Determined to exist solely in extradimensional space. Wardrobe entrance relocated to Site-34.
Security Protocol: Due to the pathogenic nature of many fungi inside, entrance is restricted to personnel equipped with Mark-III respiration equipment. Currently used to hold non-perishable equipment.
