The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the ‘Devil's Triangle’, is a region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean, bound roughly at its points by Miami, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico, where a number of aircraft and surface vessels are said to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Some trace the mystery back to the time of Columbus and estimates range from about 200 to no more than 1,000 incidents in the past 500 years. Many theories have been given to explain the extraordinary mystery of these missing ships and planes. Among the favorite explanations are unusual electromagnetic activity, pirates, extraterrestrials, magnetic forces from an 11,000-year-old comet, residual technology from the ruins of Atlantis, time vortices (aka ‘electronic fog’), government testing at AUTEC, crazy weather patterns, methane gas from the bottom of the ocean, and plain old human error.
