10 Shocking Facts You Didn’t Know About The Bermuda Triangle

08 Jan

The Bermuda Triangle is one of the
world’s biggest unsolved mysteries. Also
known as Devil’s Triangle, the triangle
extends from the island of Bermuda to
Miami, USA to San Juan, Puerto Rico and
is believed to contain a supernatural
secret. You will not find the Bermuda
Triangle on a map, but the name can
strike fear into the hearts of many
people. Thousands of people and
several planes, ships and boats have
vanished inside this triangle.
Explanations given for these
disappearances vary from scientific to
myth. Here are some shocking facts you
didn’t know about the Bermuda
Triangle.
1. Not Really A Triangle: The Bermuda
Triangle is not really a triangle. Neither
does this area have any official
boundary, nor any particular shape. The
Bermuda Triangle is also not recognized
as a real place by the United States
Navy.
2. Compass Points Towards True North:
The Bermuda Triangle is one of the
uncommon places on the planet where
the compass points towards true north
and not magnetic north. This generates
confusion and that is why several planes
and ships lost their course in the
Bermuda Triangle.
3. Lost City Of Atlantis: Two
researchers, Pauline Zalitzki and Paul
Weinzweig, have confirmed that a huge
city exists at the bottom of the ocean.
The ancient city includes four giant
pyramids and sphinxes and sits within
the boundaries of the Bermuda
Triangle. Many people believe that this
could be the lost city of Atlantis.
4. Bermuda Triangle Accidents:
According to research, reports of the
Bermuda Triangle have been overstated
and that the differences between the
Bermuda Triangle accidents and other
areas of the world are not major.
5. Atlantic Undersea Test And
Evaluation Center: Inside the Bermuda
Triangle, the American Government has
Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation
Center which is located on the
Bahamas’ Andros Island. Here the Navy
tests their sonar, submarines and other
weapons. However, several people
believe that it is more than just the
testing center.
6. Methane Gas: Large amounts of
methane gas is trapped below the
seabed of the Bermuda Triangle. A
ruptured methane gas pocket causes
density of water to drop and could
cause ships above to sink.
7. Navy Avenger Torpedo Bombers:
One of the biggest losses of US Military
happened back in 1945. Five US Navy
Avenger torpedo bombers flew from
the Fort Lauderdale Naval Air Station,
Florida, for a sortie to the Bimini island.
After 90 minutes, the radio operators
got a signal that the compass was not
functioning. Thereafter, the
communication was lost and the Navy
Avenger torpedo bombers were never
discovered.
8. No Formal Study: Only private
investigations have been carried out to
unearth the disappearances within the
Bermuda Triangle. No formal study has
been carried out to explore the
Triangle.
9. Dragon’s Triangle: The Dragon’s
Triangle is the Bermuda’s Triangle
counterpart in the Pacific Ocean. It was
announced a war zone in 1950 when
about 700 sailors disappeared in two
years. The area is considered a danger
by fishing authorities of Japan.
10. Major Incidents: USS Scorpions, c-54
Skymaster, Ellen Austin, Marine Sulphur
Queen, Mary Celeste – The Ghost Ship
and Tudor Star Tiger are some of the
significant Bermuda Triangle incidents.
