Is the Bermuda Triangle Real?
First of all let me explain what is meant by the Bermuda Triangle. This an imaginary area of the ocean, which, as the name suggests, is triangular in shape. The three points of the triangle lie in Bermuda, Miami and San Juan; along the south-eastern Atlantic coast of the US. Please note that the name Bermuda triangle is not officially recognised by the US Board of Geographic Names, but still it is in popular use. Another popular name for this triangle is the Devil's Triangle.
So what is all the fuss about all this triangle business? Actually this area has become rather infamous due to some mysterious occurrences in the region which do not have a scientifically proven reason. Most of these occurrences are related to the disappearance of marine vessels and aeroplanes in and around the region with no logical explanation.
There are many incidents connected with the Bermuda Triangle, but one that stands out prominently is related to the d
isappearance of the US Navy warship USS Cyclops. In the year 1918 this warship suddenly vanished from the region around the Bermuda triangle. Its disappearance remains a mystery till date. The wreckage of the vessel was never recovered, neither was there any trace of the more than 300 soldiers on board. The official version of the US Navy on this incident is that the ship sank due to unknown reasons.
Another incident occurred nearly two decades after this in 1945 when a group of five US air force bombers simply disappeared off the coast of Florida, again without a plausible reason. There are dozens of other incidents related to the disappearance of ships, yachts and airplanes.
