The secret of the Bermuda Triangle might have been solved finally.
These 500.000 square kilometers in the north of the Atlantic Ocean have been declared guilty for the disappearance of at least 75 planes and more than a hundred ships over centuries. Scientists now claim that the secret behind the “deadly triangle” is in the hexagonal clouds that create windy aerial bombs which move at speeds of up to 273 kilometers per hour!
According to them, those deadly air explosions can turn over ships and take planes down into the ocean.
Scientists also claim that the massive clouds appear above the western cape of the Bermuda Island, in the range of 30 to 90 kilometers.
Satellite meteorologist Steve Miller from the Colorado State University said for the Science Channel that the flat edges are not common with clouds, but that the clouds are usually dispersed.
With the help of radar satellites for the study of phenomena under the clouds, it was determined that the winds reached the speed of up to 273 kilometers per hour at the level of the sea. Those winds were strong enough to raise 13-meter-high waves, while the aerial bombs swoop down to the ocean surface.
„Those types of hexagonal clouds above the ocean are aerial bombs. They are formed by micro explosions and they represent the clusters of air that come out of the bottom of the cloud and hit the ocean, creating waves that can sometimes be enormous and mutually collide,“ claims the meteorologist Randy Cerveny.
The Bermuda Triangle is located east of the Bahamas and west of the Bermuda Island, in the north of the Atlantic Ocean.
Some of the most mysterious disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle:
The first reports date back to 1492, when Christopher Colombo reported about strange lights and compass activities in that area.
The first recorded sinking of a ship dates back to 1609, when the English ship The Sea Venture was destroyed at the eastern end of the Bermuda Island, after which the survivors inhabited the island as the first men ever to live on the island.
One of the creepiest stories is the one about the ship Ellen Austin from 1881, when the crew allegedly encountered another ship, without anyone on board. They decided to send a part of their crew on that ship and bring both ships to New York, but the ship suddenly disappeared. Then it reappeared, again with no one on board, before disappearing again.
The disappearance of the USS Cyclops and its 309 crew members in 1918 was also attributed to the action of the Bermuda Triangle.
One of the most famous disappearances is the one of the flight 19, when 5 combat planes lost contact with the plane that carried the cadets of the U.S. Navy. All 14 soldiers went missing, as well as 13 crew members of the plane that went to search for them.
