The Bermuda Triangle

The Bermuda Triangle is an area where peculiar events have taken place. But are these events just coincidental incidents or specifically related to the region otherwise known as the Devil’s Triangle or Hurricane Alley?

There is much speculation as to the validity of the reported events that have been claimed to have happened in this specific area. Many consider the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle just a myth or people’s wild imaginations getting the best of them. In any event, the first reported occurrence took place in 1881, when the Ellen Austin Ship came upon an abandoned ship in which they sent a prized crew aboard to take over the ship.  The prized crew attempted to sail it to New York but the ship disappeared and later reappeared but no crew was on board. They again sent a prized crew aboard but again disappeared. Fact or Fiction?

The U.S.S. Cyclops

In 1918, a World War I navy vessel, the U.S.S. Cyclops was refueling in the Atlantic Ocean. While stopped in Barbados, the Cyclops with more than 300 passengers disappeared. This was the single largest loss of life in the history of the US Navy except for combat-related losses. Besides passengers, the ship was also carrying manganese ore. There were also two sister ships, Proteus and Nereus that had also been lost during World War II and they were also carrying similar metallic ore. Fact or Fiction?
