The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil’s Triangle, is a loosely-defined region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean, where a number of aircraft and ships are said to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances. The apexes of the triangle are generally accepted to be Bermuda, Miami, Florida, and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The area surrounding the Bermuda Triangle is one of the most heavily traveled shipping lanes in the world, with ships frequently crossing through it for ports in the Americas, Europe, and the Caribbean islands.
It has become a popular belief over the years that the sinking of ships and crashing of aircraft in the area is a result of the paranormal activity.
The earliest reported incident took place in the 1800s at sea, it was the sinking of navy ship USS Pickering.
The ship sailed from Newcastle, Delaware and was never heard from again. The ship is believed to have gotten lost in a gale wind storm at sea.
The latest incident is believed to have taken place on May 15, 2018, when an MU-2B-40 aircraft disappeared from the radar 59kms east of Eleuthera, an island in the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. Debris from the aircraft was found by the United States Coast Guard.
Seven people are believed to have died in the crash. In total, about 26 crashes and sinking ships are believed to have happened in the area. Several sources have over the years have come up with several reasons that are related to natural causes such as human error, extreme weather conditions.
Some of the reasoning behind the Bermuda disappearances include:
Left over technology from the mythical and now lost continent of Atlantis;Unidentified Flying Objects and aliens; Tropical storms and hurricanes are also common in this region of the Atlantic, which could account for many of the reported disappearances ; Methane coming out from deep under the sea bed might have engulfed the ships passing by; electronic fog is a meteorological phenomenon which sticks to an aircraft or a ship. It’s said that the fog causes equipment on aircrafts and ships to malfunction – such as spinning of compasses which might have lead to the malfunction of ships and aircrafts, etc..
The broader believed idea is that there is no paranormal activity and that a combination of factors that can be used to explain the disappearances in the area.
