The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil's Triangle, is a loosely-defined region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean, where a number of aircraft and ships are said to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Most reputable sources dismiss the idea that there is any mystery.
The area surrounding the Bermuda Triangle is one of the most heavily traveled shipping lanes in the world, with ships frequently crossing through it for ports in the Americas, Europe, and the Caribbean islands.
Cruise ships regularly sail through the region, and commercial and private aircraft routinely fly over it.
It has become a popular belief over the years that the sinking of ships and crashing of aircraft in the area is a result of the paranormal activity.
Investigations into these claims by news crews and scientists has found that the claims of paranormal activity are unfounded and that the crashes can normally be attributed to natural causes.
Some details about the crashes are said to have been 'embellished' by later authors.
