A recent documentary shows that peculiar hexagonal clouds form in the so-called Bermuda Triangle. Their existence could be the answer to the mysterious disappearances in the area. The features of the clouds lead to weather phenomena which make the passage of ships and planes difficult. Now, what does science have to say about that?
The Bermuda Triangle is a region in the Atlantic Ocean, in the proximity of lands such as Puerto Rico, Florida, and Bermuda. There is evidence of a peculiar type of hexagonal clouds which gather across the sky in this Northern part of the Atlantic Ocean. The clouds are said to give birth to powerful winds, of one hundred and six kilometers per hour. Such weather phenomena could be behind the strange disappearance of planes and ships in the area.
The hexagonal clouds were caught on images by special NASA satellites. They stretch from thirty-two to eighty-eight kilometers on the skies above the Atlantic. Experts also say that the clouds formations are located about two hundred forty kilometers away from Florida.
Meteorologists declared that they are surprised by the shape and appearance of the hexagonal clouds. They have straight edges, which is rather uncommon for clouds. However, similar structures were identified above European waters as well. The North Sea is also covered by such clouds, which produce winds of one hundred sixty kilometers per hour. The phenomena are also associated with high sea levels and tides.
However, the Bermuda Triangle is more of a myth. The denomination was invented more than half a century ago, by Edward Van Winkle Jones. He was a journalist and wrote an article about the disappearance of boats and planes in the North Atlantic.
Journalists and writers further perpetuated the story. Decades later, the myth of the Bermuda Triangle still lingers, although no serious investigation was carried out on the missing ships and aircraft. However, the truth did come out. It seems that there were registration errors and some accidents that are common anywhere in the world, and not specific to the North Atlantic region.
Larry Kusche is a journalists who published a book called The Bermuda Triangle Mystery – Solved. The book was released back in 1975, but the region is still believed to be dangerous and strange. Kusche explains in the book that real facts don’t match the rumors about the stated area in the Atlantic Ocean. Despite the author’s endeavor, there are many people who still think of the Bermuda Triangle as a bad omen.
Do you believe in the phenomena associated with the Bermuda Triangle or would you say it is a myth?
