Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: Due to the nature and remote location of SCP-XXXX, no special containment procedures have been deemed necessary. Information on the anomalous nature of SCP-XXXX are to be restricted to the public and astronomical community outside a select few individuals. Photos of SCP-XXXX with instances of SCP-XXXX-Ω visible are to be replaced with edited variants. As of 22/5/202█, agents embedded in astronomical institutions worldwide are to monitor all solar systems within 4,000 light years of Earth are to be continuously monitored for any anomalies that may have been caused by an instance of SCP-XXXX-Ω.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the supermassive black hole located at the centre of our galaxy, and does not exhibit any properties that deviate from similar baseline structures. Currently, approximately 698 anomalous entities can be identified in photos of SCP-XXXX, around its accretion disk and event horizon. Living Nidhogg-Class terafauna instances can be found in various locations within the accretion disk, while presumably deceased instances are present on the event horizon. Based on thorough analysis, the event horizon of SCP-XXXX has been confirmed to contain millions, if not billions of smaller items. Further research is ongoing to determine the relevance of these objects.

The anomalous nature of SCP-XXXX was discovered after the deployment of the Foundation JUPITER satellite radio telescope system in 201█. All photos taken of the black hole yielded multiple large shadows within its accretion disk, measuring between approximately 5 million kilometres to 75 million kilometres in length. Upon further analysis with more powerful telescopes over a longer time frame, the shadows have been determined to be space-borne Nidhogg-Class terafauna within close proximity to SCP-XXXX, hereafter collectively designated as SCP-XXXX-Ω.

Given the general movement of SCP-XXXX-Ω instances, it is assumed that they are attempting to escape the gravitational influence of SCP-XXXX. This has been generally accepted after later photos of SCP-XXXX reveal static instances of SCP-XXXX-Ω on the event horizon of the former. Between 201█ and 202█, approximately 7 instances of SCP-XXXX-Ω have ceased all activity, and are presumed to have fallen beyond the event horizon of SCP-XXXX. 3 instances, reclassified as SCP-XXXX-Œ, has been observed to have moved out of the accretion disk and hence, the view of Foundation telescopes.

It is believed SCP-XXXX was used as a method of waste disposal by an advanced civilisation near the centre of the galaxy around 30,000 years ago, with another hypothesis proposing that SCP-XXXX was also used by the aforementioned civilisation to terminate SCP-XXXX-Ω instances.
