An SCP-3XXX event just prior to launch.

Special Containment Procedures: Foundation satellites MALAKBEL-1 through 10 will monitor the south pole of the Sun for SCP-3XXX. Under Protocol Koyash-Veure, all Foundation space stations and off-planet bases within the solar system will have monitoring of the Sun as their secondary mission objective. Connections will be maintained with major space agencies for enhanced monitoring of the anomaly, with accurate information on the phenomena restricted to specified personnel1. Any public information on SCP-3XXX should be confiscated or modified to remove signs of anomalous activity.

Description: SCP-3XXX is the designation of various anomalous solar phenomena, primarily occurring at the south pole of the Sun. There are three types of known SCP-3XXX events:

  • SCP-3XXX-1: The event starts with the appearance of six equidistant ovular sun spots, approximately 40,000 km x 15,000 km in size, with a 35,000 km distance between each spot. The ends of the sun spots converge after 23 hours, often accompanied with the formation of a solar prominence. The prominence typically takes the shape of various patterns, some of which resemble and are presumed to be thaumaturgical symbols. Following this a coronal mass ejection will occur from the area around the sun spots, lasting 11 hours, with the prominence dissipating after 5 hours.
  • SCP-3XXX-2: The event is similar to SCP-3XXX-1, though instead of a coronal mass ejection a solar flare occurs. This is followed by the formation of a "solar pillar,"2 a long prominence that extends an average of 70 au. After reaching this length the pillar breaks off from the Sun and moves away from it, likely entering interstellar space. The event lasts for 2 hours.
  • SCP-3XXX-3: Sun spots form thaumaturgical symbols, which range in size. This can occur in conjunction with other events or separately. Unlike the previous two phenomena, these sun spots do not commonly manifest in any single area.

The first recorded SCP-3XXX event was on 17-May-1983, where an SCP-3XXX-3 event was observed, showing Thaumaturgic Symbol-22013. The event was classified as EE-9008 until similar occurrences were observed, leading to the classification of SCP-3XXX.

We double checked it. Triple checked it. Quadruple checked it. This is the only picture sent back by Seraph 1. And this it.

Our infinite, ever expanding universe.

I'm recommending upgrading SCP-3XXX to Thaumiel.
