Despite what the name might suggest, this room is not a Landing Site. Rather, the room is a wide open space, containing many floating platforms above the clouds of Elysia. The peak of the Leviathan Shield is visible through the clouds, as with all other outdoor SkyTown rooms. To cross the large chasm, Samus must utilize the Screw Attack. On one of the platforms is a Spider Ball Track that comes into use later. Above said platform is another one, with a Databot floating above it. Samus can stand on this platform by using the Spider Ball Track, but can scan the Databot's SkyTown Data entry from below.
- "We watched as Elysia fell victim to the meteor's corruption, its Phazon beginning to consume her. High above the noxious surface, we continued to collect data on the object. It was not long before we met a new enemy. Space Pirates, hostile alien life-forms and sworn enemies of the Federation, entered the station and attacked. The Pirate forces struck swiftly, their numbers and weapons dwarfing our own. After their initial assault, they began construction of a massive energy shield around the meteor. They referred to the fallen object as a "Seed" and quickly built the protective barrier. Any resistance they met from us was crushed, and the massive shield was built without interruption. Our attention then turned to the Pirates themselves. If we could not stop them through combat, perhaps there was another way. Our studies quickly yielded unexpected results. All of the Space Pirates were corrupted with Phazon, but unlike other life-forms, they were actually being sustained by it. This Phazon kept them alive, and it appeared to control their minds with a will of its own."
