After consuming the lives of thousands, Bermuda Triangle has apparently become one of the most mysterious places is the world which has unresolved stories. Also known as the Devil's Triangle, it lies in the Western part of the Atlantic Ocean. Some aircraft and watercrafts have disappeared here in a mysterious way.
The Bermuda Triangle is a section of Atlantic Ocean which is bounded by Miami, Puerto Rico, and Bermuda and was firstly mentioned in an article in the magazine Argosy. Since then it has achieved an image of a scary and very secretive place because it has swallowed everything that crosses it.
For those who have visited this place cannot share about what it is all about because certainly, they did not return and for those who haven't visited aren't aware of it. So, here we have the interesting facts about Bermuda Triangle that are unknown to you.
Bermuda Triangle is quite large. The area it covers ranges from 500,000 to 1,510,000 sq mi, as given by the different writers. Consequently, the accidents which took place inside the triangle depends on the writer who reported it.
When any ship or plane disappears in this Triangle, its remains are not found. Or say, the disappeared thing is not traceable. The very reason behind this is said to be the Gulf Stream that runs near the triangle, which quickly sweeps away the debris.
What do you think by the way? That the accidents will only happen within the range or the area that has been defined? Certainly not! And apparently, its effect can be experienced outside the triangle too.
Christopher Columbus is said to be the first one to report about the weird things happening at the Bermuda Triangle. He mentioned in his journals that he saw a fireball in the sky, and also his ship's compass stopped working inside the triangle.
This is one place on the earth where the compass does not point towards the Magnetic North. Instead, it points towards the actual north creating confusion for the ships and the planes. And this might be the reason for the airways and waterways mode losing their course in the triangle.
It is said that on an average, around 20 yachts and 4 aircraft go missing every year. It has taken 1,000 live over the last century.
A pilot named Bruce Gernon is the only person in the world to witness 'what creates the Bermuda Triangle.' For which he traveled through a time-warping cloud tunnel for 28 minutes without having a sight of the earth or even the skies and later he found himself on the Miami Beach.
