Top 5 Things you should know about Bermuda Triangle

What is Bermuda Triangle?

The Bermuda triangle , known as devil triangle is a well-defined region in the western part of the north Atlantic ocean where dozens of ships and aeroplanes have disappeared. Boats and Planes have seemingly vanished from the area in good weather without even any messages. Myriad fanciful theories have been proposed regarding the Bermuda Triangle but none of them proves the disappearances occur more frequently there than in other well-traveled sections of the ocean.

1. Flight 19

On 5th December 1945

14 navy men left Florida and took to the sky’s what was supposed to be a routine training exercise known as Flight 19. But after 1 hour 45 minutes after their journey, flight leader Taylor reported that all three compass has not been functioning. He said, “we don’t know which way is west, everything is wrong, even the ocean doesn’t look as it should". Flying through the western part of Northen Atlantic ocean now called Bermuda triangle, Flight 19 was never seen again.

2. Strange Light 

When Christopher Columbus sailed through the area he found that a great flame of fire crashed into the sea one night and that a strange light appeared in the distance a few days later. He also wrote about erratic compass readings, Bermuda Triangle was one of the few places on Earth where true north and magnetic north lined up.

3. Unnoticed Pyramid

Many people believe that there is a huge pyramid inside the Atlantic Ocean which can pull all things into it. For about 500 years, it was named danger region after the disappearances of planes and ships.

4. Craters have been found

Scientists have found craters up to 150ft deep, believed to have been caused by methane. Scientists say "There is a version that the Bermuda Triangle is a consequence of gas hydrates reactions".They start to actively decompose with methane ice turning into gas. It happens in an avalanche-like way, like a nuclear reaction, producing huge amounts of gas.That makes the ocean heat up and ships sink in its waters mixed with a huge proportion of gas.

5. Hexagonal Clouds

The remarkable new theory suggests that Strange clouds forming above the Bermuda Triangle could explain why dozens of ships and planes have mysteriously vanished in the notorious patch of sea.The clouds are linked to 170-mph “air bombs” — capable of bringing down planes and ships. Using radar satellite imagery, they discovered bizarre “hexagonal”-shaped clouds between 20 and 50 miles wide forming over the dodgy patch of water.
