Long-exposure telescopic image of SCP-4529, captured using Wide Field Imager.


Special Containment Procedures: AAS-014 has been disconnected and jettisoned from the Global Atreus Satellite Array, loaded with a high-powered railgun and directed toward Martian orbit. When AAS-014 detects SCP-4549 approaching the atmosphere at a sufficiently high velocity, it will automatically lock to target and repeatedly fire its railgun. Should this attempt succeed, the remnant pieces of SCP-4549 will be collected for analysis. Should the attempt fail, no further action is necessary.

Description: SCP-4549 is a celestial object in the Solar System rapidly approaching Mars at a variable velocity. SCP-4549's speed shifts and directional changes make precise and accurate imagining unfeasible; however, general characteristics of the object have been ascertained. SCP-4549 is an exceedingly small object, less than a kilometer in width, most of which is made up of ice and rocks forming a corona around an even smaller core. SCP-4529's erratic path shifts and detours have led researchers to theorize it is sentient or sapient in nature. It will often deviate from its usual path to take loops around other bodies and occasionally stop in place for days at a time. On its current flight path, SCP-4529 is expected to collide with Mars on January 18th, 2018.

Addendum 4529.1: Notable Deviations:

DATE: 3/9/2017

BEHAVIOUR: SCP-4529 deviated from its typical path by 65°, accelerating toward XXXXXX, nearby dwarf planetoid comprised primarily of water and ice. SCP-4529 slowed on approach to the planet, and is believed to have made contact with the liquid surface. Immediately following this, SCP-4529 rapidly reentered orbit and returned to its typical flight path, traveling in a zig-zagging path until it did so.

DATE: 5/6/2017

BEHAVIOUR: SCP-4529 slowed as it approached JAEGER-19, a Foundation Observational Satellite in orbit around Saturn. Despite JAEGAR-19 venting large amounts of heat as a waste product of its operation, SCP-4549 appeared unaffected, losing no mass to melting to evaporation. It actively pressed itself closer to JAEGAR's vents for the duration of the thermal vent cycle, leaving an hour after JAEGAR cooled itself.

Addendum 4529.2: On January 18th, 2018, SCP-4529 rapidly accelerated and accelerated toward Mars. AAS-014 was armed and put on standby due to the imminent risk of planetary shattering if SCP-4529 collided with Mars at its new velocity. On January 20th, 2018, SCP-4529 arrived at the edge of Martian atmosphere, but rapidly decelerated and entered orbit instead of impacting the surface. SCP-4529 proceeded to slingshot Mars entirely, curving around it and accelerating to escape its orbit and directed itself towards Earth. SCP-4529 is expected to impact in -182 day(s), somewhere in the continental United States. Revised containment procedures are underway. Notably, SCP-4529 appears to be shedding mass as it approaches Earth, stripping itself down to the solid core.

SCP-4529.


Special Containment Procedures: SCP-4529 is contained in a low-security animal containment chamber in Site-59. Measures to transfer containment responsibility to Foundation Suboperator-YYYY "Wilson's Wildlife Services" are in-progress.

Description: SCP-4529 is a grey tabby house cat (Felis catus).

All parts of the animal to the forward of the end of the ribcage are absent. The body terminates cleanly at this point.

Aside from this, SCP-4529 has no health problems, and moves as if its forequarters were still in place. It is able to eat and groom itself with no excess difficulty, and still produces vocalizations typical to a normal house cat. It also appears able to see its surroundings despite the lack of head.

The cross-section is completely black and opaque, rendering observation into the interior of the anomaly impossible.

The forward regions are not invisible - a physical examination will show that they are simply absent. DNA testing has shown the animal to be female.

Addendum 4529.1: Recovery: SCP-4529 made contact with the planet's surface on January 21st, landing in North Tennessee, 6.5 kilometers from Site-59. By slowing and shedding its large corona of ice and rocks while traveling through the atmosphere, SCP-4529 was able to land with negligible collateral damage. It appears to have sustained no injuries via impact. SCP-4529 immediately began running toward Site-59, where it sat in front of the entrance until it was placed into containment.

The presence of SCP-529 at Site-59 and the parallels between SCP-529 and SCP-4529's anomalies is not believed to be a coincidence. Research into attempts to join the pair is underway.
