SCP-ES-105
rating: +2+x

Item #: SCP-ES-105

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: Due to the nature of SCP-ES-105, containment efforts should be focused on the creation of a database of people with a strong interest in constellations, celestial bodies and ecological trends. The database will be supported by the governments of the world's major powers and population centres. This database will be managed by the Foundation's Disinformation Bureau and will be updated regarding research on the groups of Fifthist doctrine.

In addition, any Foundation facility with astronomical equipment must observe the sky to verify that the visible stars correspond to the astronomical catalogue Tycho-2 to detect manifestations of SCP-ES-105.

Given any accusation about the color of the sky or the lack of street lighting, the Foundation must draw up an alibi explaining why light pollution or eco-terrorists are behind the issues.

Any found instance of SCP-ES-105-1 will be seized and brought to Site-76.

Description: SCP-ES-105 is a manifestation that appears at an altitude of 25000 m of unknown origin that manifests itself in the celestial sky several days before events considered important (e.g. concerts, riots, sightings of unidentified objects or creatures, etc.), exclusively affecting the area where it manifests and supplanting the celestial bodies present in the sky by others, giving preference to those celestial bodies (mainly constellations or asterisms)1 with pentagonal forms or containing at least 5 visible stars.

The first noticeable effect of SCP-ES-105 occurs at the beginning of its manifestation, affecting the perception of those within the area of effect of SCP-ES-105, making them believe that the firmament visible to them does not present anomalous properties. The detailed description of a manifestation of SCP-ES-105, from now known as Celesta Event, will be shown in Attachment Celesta-001.

Discovery: The first official sighting of SCP-ES-105 occurred on the night of August 17, 1969 in Bethel, NY, at the Woodstock Festival at approximately 01:00 GMT-5. The incident occurred in the apparent replacement of the Lacerta constellation by the Lyra constellation, thus initiating a Celesta Event. It was apparently initiated by the celebrity and alleged Fifthist musician James Marshall "Jim" Hendrix when he pronounced a variation of the phrase "Imagination is the key to my lyrics. The rest is painted with a little science fiction," emphasizing the power of stars and how to draw them with the fingers. After the end of the Celesta Event, approximately █.█% was permanently affected by SCP-ES-105, causing the formation of ecovillages and culminating in the "Back to Earth" movement along with greater environmental awareness and opposition to the Vietnam War.

On 09/02/1969, the UIU arrested 10 people as part of Operation Morning Star in Tucson, Arizona, which began to suppress the growing outbreaks of counterculture caused by the Vietnam War and the Protests of 1968. They all professed and disseminated an alternative form of hippie philosophy, giving great importance to incense rituals, chants, stars and the number five6. Several star charts, catalogued as SCP-ES-105-1, were found to have been anomalously modified to temporarily alter the appearance of stellar bodies. They were subsequently handed over to the Foundation due to their lack of resources to continue research on SCP-ES-105. Nowadays, the method is still unknown to the Foundation.

Date: 07-02-2007
Original heavenly body: LEO
Heavenly body displayed: JOB'S COFFIN

Effects during the Celesta Event: Loss of perception of external stimuli, unconsciousness.

Person of Interest: Ken Kobayashi10

Transcription: I'm sorry to have put you to sleep, but I have a very important message. I know you're very tired, but Jurōjin11 needs you. It wants to take you to the stars, but it needs you to do a couple of tasks before it takes you with it. Remember to go to the temple every day and make the offerings, until it calls you. When it calls you, do not be afraid to die, for only the stars are real.

Effects during the Celesta Event: Ergomania, Shinto religious fanaticism, suicidal thoughts ending in their subsequent death.

Notes: This was the first Celesta Event that resulted in casualties. It should be noted that SCP-ES-105 affected 10 subjects in an urban area of approximately 200,000 inhabitants. All the transcripts were collected from ████ █████, the only subject who remains alive. After the data collection, it was given Class-B amnestics.

Event number: 025
Location: MONTEVIDEO
Date: 05-15-2010
Original heavenly body: LIBRA AND SATURN
Heavenly body displayed: CRUX

Effects during the Celesta Event: Loss of perception of external stimuli, visualization of Christian religious icons, greater density of fumes generated in Stage 2 of Celesta Event, rites related to the Catholic Church.

Person of Interest: Amador Márquez12

Transcription: Brethren, we are here today to commemorate the ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ, crucified on the Five-Pointed Cross, to Heaven. As we all know, Paradise is a place full of fumes with stars like the pearls of Our Lord. As is to be expected, you must take your incense holders to "perfume" its home and rise up to the Truth. Remember that all this is for the Southern Polar Star, better known as the divine sign, to appear and take us with it. And remember, if you love him not, his archons will not let you go up.

Effects during the Celesta Event: Conversion to the Catholic Christian religion or greater adherence to that religion if they were already believers. Increased use of incense spirals at Sunday Masses.

Notes: The Catholic rites after SCP-ES-105 are similar to those practiced in the southern United States. From this moment on, an investigation is being carried out in Catholic dioceses to find possible infiltrated members of The Fifth Church and its branches following established Containment Procedures.

Addendum 1: On 05/17/2010, thanks to the local court, a court order was obtained to search the home of Amador Márquez in ████, Uruguay. When their belongings were searched they found a wooden cross with the lower end separated in half, achieving a star-like appearance, several sticks of incense and a series of notes written by Amador Márquez.
