When we talk about the Bermuda Triangle, many people have many thoughts and not sure if the Bermuda Triangle mystery solved or not. It is one of the most mysterious areas in the world.
The term Bermuda Triangle also known as Devil’s Triangle was named by Vincent H. Gaddis, an American author in 1964 in Argosy Magazine.
It lies in the North Atlantic Ocean between Florida, Puerto Rico and the island of Bermuda covering around 500,000 square miles. If a line is drawn between these points in the map, the area becomes a triangle shape.
There are countless tales of vanished ships and aircraft around this area. More than 200 ships and 100 aircraft were reported missing while passing through the Bermuda Triangle without any trace. Even more than a thousand people were reported missing in those ships and aircraft.
With time, there are many theories given by scientists, travelers around the globe. Some say, it is cursed and paranormal and some people even believe it is something related to Aliens.
The history behind the Bermuda Triangle:
Columbus discovered Bermuda Triangle in 1492 during his journey to discover
The crew along with Columbus noticed mysterious activities during their journey such as compass malfunction, bright lights around the clouds in the sky and even meteor fireballs falling from the sky.
On March 4, 1918, the US. Navy’s largest fuel ship at that time, U.S.S. Cyclops, disappeared near Barbados and all 309 people in it went missing. There was no distress signal sent from the ship nor anybody answered radio calls from other nearby ships while they had all those technologies. December 28, 1948 – an airplane carrying 26 people disappeared, 50 miles from Florida.
A ship called Southen Districts, a US Navy landing ship also reported missing near Bermuda Triangle in October 1951.
In another strange report on December 22, 1967, a cruiser named Witch Craft which was built to be virtually unsinkable disappeared along with its 2 passengers in the Devil’s Triangle.
5 Torpedo bombers departed from Florida on their routine training mission carrying 14 men led by Lieutenant Charles Taylor on December 5, 1945, were vanished suddenly after sending their last message which was something like “We do not know where we are. Everything seems wrong. Everything seems strange”. The rescue plane also went missing after it was sent out to look for traces.
The Mary Celeste:
The strangest story among all the above is The Mary Celeste. On 7th November 1872, it started its voyage from New York to Geneva. On the 5th of December 1872, the ship was found untouched in the Atlantic Ocean, but all the people were missing with everything intact.
Many people say that the area is an alternate dimension on earth or maybe that it’s consumed with supernatural powers. Some people think it’s a gateway to another universe or maybe a black hole, while few scientists mention this as a magnetic phenomenon.
What do you think caused all these occurrences?
