The Bermuda Triangle is infamous for (mysteriously) claiming the lives of many without a trace. Case in point: Flight 19 (1945) and the USS Cyclops (1918).
For years people have been pondering and sharing possible theories surrounding the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle – blaming the 500,000 km square stretch in the North Atlantic Ocean for the disappearance of countless ships and aircrafts for centuries.
But it appears, after claiming the lives from at least 75 planes and hundreds of ships, the mystery might have finally been cracked!
Scientists discovered hexagonal clouds that create petrifying 170mph winds air bombs capable of tearing down trees, capsize ships and sending planes crashing into the ocean – leading scientists to believe is the root cause behind the triangle’s string of tragedies.

On top of that, scientists also highlighted that the clouds were appearing over the western tip of Bermuda Island, ranging from 20 to 55 miles across.
“You don’t typically see straight edges with clouds,” explained satellite meteorologist, Dr Steve Miller, to What On Earth channel.
“Most of the time, clouds are random in their distribution.”
It was with the help of radar satellites that scientists were able to unearth the phenomenon that’s happening beneath the unusual clouds.
Another meteorologist, Randy Cerveny, relayed that, “These types of hexagonal shapes over the ocean are in essence air bombs.
“They are formed by what are called microbursts and they’re blasts of air that come down out of the bottom of a cloud and then hit the ocean and then create waves that can sometimes be massive in size as they start to interact with each other.”

Earlier this year, another theory was mooted by researchers at Arctic University of Norway theorized that large build ups of methane gas in the sea floor triggered violent eruptions capable of sinking ships.
Whether its rising gas bubbles from the seabed or dangerous air bombs from the sky, it probably wasn’t aliens from outer space that plucked those unfortunate crafts into another dimension.
