Picture of SCP-2983, taken in 1969 by the SCPF Jericho-10 satellite.

Item #: SCP-2983

Object Class: Safe Neutralized

Special Containment Procedures: As of 8/15/1969, the SCPF Jericho-10 satellite is currently within Saturn's orbit with the task of observing SCP-2983.

A coverup has been initiated, labeling SCP-2983 as a minor moon orbiting far from Saturn. Several field agents have been deployed within NASA headquarters in order to remove and edit all information regarding SCP-2983's anomalous nature.

As of 2/9/2017, no containment procedures are required for SCP-2983. Please see the addenda for more information regarding SCP-2983's neutralization.

Description: SCP-2983 is a head of a Buddha statue that is entirely composed of stone and is 71.6 meters in radius. Currently, SCP-2983 is in orbit around the planet Saturn, orbiting roughly 1.1 thousand km from Saturn's surface.

SCP-2983 has been found to be tidally locked with Saturn1, despite the position of the object. This is considered to be anomalous as SCP-2983 is considered to orbit too far away from Saturn for this to occur naturally.

SCP-2983 is sapient, being able to communicate by emitting a series of radio waves. The process by which SCP-2983 is able to produce and emit radio waves is unknown. SCP-2983 does not actively communicate with personnel on its own accord, but most attempts to communicate with the object have been sucessful. SCP-2983 views the planet Saturn as a relative or possibly a romantic partner. SCP-2983 claims to have known an entity of which currently resides as or within the planet Saturn, although SCP-2983 has not delivered specific details regarding said entity.

SCP-2983 speaks in standard morse code. The reason for this is currently unknown.

Addendum 2983.2: On 1/9/2017, SCP-2983 began deliberately communicating with Jericho-10. This event is of note because SCP-2983 had not attempted to converse with the Foundation for over 50 years.

Jericho-10, during logs 2, 3, 4, and 5, was attended by Doctor L. Ings. Dr. Ings specializes in the therapeutic treatment of sapient SCP objects. Log 6, however, was attended by Researcher Murphy due to Dr. Ings's absence at the time.

Addendum 2983.6: On 2/8/2017, SCP-2983 began communicating with Jericho-10 after a month. The following log reads as such:
