These Scientists Think "Hexagonal Clouds" Could Explain The Bermuda Triangle

A group of scientists believe they have the answer to the decades of sea tales surrounding the Bermuda Triangle. The new idea says this much-feared triangular region of the Atlantic ocean may be explained through strange “hexagonal clouds” creating “air-bombs”.

While looking at satellite images of coastal clouds above the North Atlantic Ocean, the meteorologists reportedly noted strange patterns of hexagonal gaps as large as 88 kilometers (55 miles) in the cloud formations, according to Science Channel. It just so happens, this bizarre phenomenon was found on the west tip of the Bermuda Triangle, as well as a precarious point in Europe's North Sea.

“These types of hexagonal shapes in the ocean are, in essence, air bombs," Dr Randy Cerveny, a meteorologist from Arizona State University, told the Science Channel’s What on Earth show. "They’re formed by what is called microbursts and they’re blasts of air that come down out of the bottom of the cloud and then hit the ocean and then create waves, sometimes massive in size..."

The scientists believe these “air bombs” could pump winds to move at over 273 kilometers (170 miles) per hour, which could account for the handful of reports of ships going missing in the area.

The whole mechanism of the “hexagonal cloud” theory, such as how or why they are formed, is not highlighted in their excerpt video. It’s also worth noting that there is not much in the way of hard evidence to state that the Bermuda Triangle is as ferocious as its reputation says.

But hey, it’s certainly better than ideas of it being the gateway to another alien dimension. See what you think of the video below.
