There are lots of mysteries in the world that are still unsolved until now, and one of the famous mysteries that I’m gonna show you is the Bermuda Triangle also known as the Devil’s Triangle, Bermuda Triangle is a strange triangular area on the Atlantic ocean where many ships sailing through it or planes flying over it have apparently disappeared without a trace. In few of such cases where wrecks could be found, the crew had vanished. And such incidents have been happening since centuries. More than 1,000 ships and planes have disappeared in the triangle area over the past five centuries. Pilots often tell of their instruments going haywire and numerous ships have been lost at sea. With explanations ranging from gas bubbles to aliens, no one is sure what is behind the strange phenomena.
Here are the facts about Bermuda Triangle:
- In 1945, 6 US Navy bombers disappeared and so did those sent to rescue them. Before the 27 men vanished, 1 pilot reported “Everything looks strange. Even the ocean.”
- Columbus’s ship floated on still waters through the Triangle in 1492. He documented unusual compass readings and a fireball in the sky.
- More than 1000 lives have been lost in the Bermuda Triangle over the last century. On average, 4 aircraft and 20 yachts go missing every year.
- Pilot Bruce Gernon claims he lost 28 minutes after flying through a time-warping cloud tunnel. The plane went missing from radars, only to re-emerge in Miami Beach.
- The approaching lights of Irving Rivers’ plane were spotted 2 miles from land in 1978. It vanished into thin air while controllers were momentarily distracted.
- High levels of methane gas are trapped underneath the Triangle’s seabed. A ruptured gas pocket causes water density to dip and could sink vessels above.
- The Dragon Triangle is Bermuda’s Counterpart in the Pacific Ocean. It was declared a war zone in 1950 when 700 sailors vanished in 2 years.
- Some believe the lost city of Atlantis will be found under the Bermuda Triangle. They think the city’s energy crystals interfere with radar and compass readings.
- 306 people were lost when the Navy ship the USS Cyclops vanished in 1918. It is the single largest loss of life in US Naval history outside of combat.
- The US government testing base, AUTEC, is known as the naval Area 51. Located near to the Triangle, the area has been the scene of reported UFO sightings.
