LEGEND OF BERMUDA
The legend of the Bermuda Triangle is said to have begun when five Navy planes took off from their base in Florida December 5, 1945 on a routine training mission known as Flight 19 – neither the planes nor the crew were ever seen again.
Long before the legend of the Bermuda Triangle became popular, Bermuda had already earned a reputation as an enchanted island. It was nicknamed “The Devil's Islands” by early sea travelers, frightened by the calls of
birds and the squeals of wild pigs that could be heard on shore. But perhaps the most damning tales were told by sailors terrified of shipwreck on Bermuda's treacherous stretch of reefs.
The imaginary area referred to as the Bermuda Triangle covers about 500,000 square miles of ocean off the southeastern tip of Florida; an area roughly bounded by Miami, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico. This region didn't get its name until August 1964 when Vincent Gaddis coined the term Bermuda Triangle in a cover story
for Argosy magazine about the disappearance of Flight 19

SURVIVORS OF THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE
CHRISTIPHOR COLUBUS EXPERIENCE
Christopher Columbus is the first to have sailed through the Sargasso Sea and the Bermuda Triangle. He is also the first to have reported unusual events. But no matter how often they are recounted, they are seldom qualified. Ignorance of his logs has reduced these events to mere vague rumors, and per usual they are greatly inaccurate.
But thanks to Oliver Dunne and James Kelley, the extracts from his log which were compiled shortly after his death by Fray
have been translated (The
of Columbus, 1989) and give a vivid picture of many unexpected events.
Today it is often claimed that on the eve of discovering the New world, Columbus saw a fire ball plunge into the sea before his vessels. An “odd forecast” this has been called. Actually, the event happened only a few days after leaving the Canary Islands, far before the Sargasso Sea and Bermuda Triangle. He actually saw a light on the horizon on October 11, 1492, which does remain unexplained today. (In a 1979 documentary on Charles
popular book on the Bermuda Triangle all the elements of cheap tabloid fiction came together to showcase this as a host of blue-green glowing UFOs: the compasses rocked as they darted to and from the surface of the sea, and Italian actors with poorly dubbed English lines grunted and moaned.)
But when traveling through the Sargasso Sea and Bermuda Triangle truly unusual things did happen.
13 September 1492
On this day at the beginning of night the compasses
and in the morning they
The pilots took the north, marking it [North Star], and found that the compasses
northwested a full point [11 and one quarter degrees]; and the sailors were fearful and depressed and did not say why. The Admiral was aware of this and he ordered that the north again be marked when dawn came, and they found that the compasses were correct. The cause was that the North Star appears to move and not the compasses. Sunday 23 SeptemberSince the sea had been calm and smooth the men complained, saying that since in that region there were no rough seas [Sargasso Sea], it would never blow for a return to Spain. But later the sea rose high and without wind, which astonished them, because of which the Admiral says here that the high sea was very necessary for me, a sign which had not appeared except in the time of the Jews when they left Egypt and complained against Moses, who took them out of captivity. Sunday, 30 SeptemberAlso the Admiral says here when night comes the compasses northwest one quarter, and when dawn comes they coincide with the North Star exactly.
