A new theory aims to explain the mysterious disappearance of planes and ships around the Bermuda Triangle.
Meteorologists revealed that strange clouds linked to super-powerful “air bombs” could be capable of bringing down large objects,while speaking to Science Channel’s “What on Earth?” (external - login to view)
According to the New York Post, (external - login to view) scientists used satellite imagery to detect “hexagonal”-shaped clouds between 30 and 80 km wide, with a hurricane-like force of 275 km/h, forming over patches of water.
“The satellite imagery is really bizarre … the hexagonal shapes of the cloud formations,” said meteorologist Dr. Randy Cerveny. “These types of hexagonal shapes in the ocean are in essence air bombs. They’re formed by what is called microbursts and they’re blasts of air.”
The Bermuda Triangle, which is located between Miami, Puerto Rico and the island of Bermuda, has baffled researchers for decades. The area has been synonymous with objects mysteriously disappearing.
