Also known as the Devil’s Triangle, is a 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 roughly bounded by Miami, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico.

The earliest suggestion of unusual disappearances in the Bermuda area appeared in a September 17, 1950, article published in The Miami Herald by Edward Van Winkle Jones (Miami Associated Press Writer). In 1964, American author (Paranormal writer) Vincent Gaddis coined the term Bermuda Triangle in a cover story for Argosy magazine about the disappearance of Flight 19.

Triangle writers have used a number of concepts to explain the events. Some writers attribute the events to attacks by huge sea monsters, giant squid or aliens. Other writers have theorized that unusual local magnetic anomalies may exist in the area. One of the most cited explanations in official inquiries as to the loss of any aircraft or vessel is human error. Hurricanes and powerful storms have in the past caused a number of incidents related to the Triangle. An explanation for some of the disappearances has focused on the presence of large fields of methane hydrates (a form of natural gas) on the continental shelves.
