15 facts about the Bermuda Triangle
15. Christopher Columbus Was The First To Speculate Over The Bermuda Triangle
Christopher Columbus kept a journal throughout his voyages in hopes of keeping every little detail documented. His journal, “Vita del Ammiraglio” which translates to, “The Life of The Admiral” proved to be very informative in helping the modern world understand what went on all those hundred of years ago.
In 1492, Columbus set sail in hopes of finding an alternative route to Asia, and ended up discovering the Americas instead. His journey brought him directly into what some people like to call, “The Devil’s Triangle” but unfortunately for the native people of North America, the Bermuda Triangle did not disappear Columbus’ ship.
“There exists the possibility of never leaving this legendary sea. My compass acts strangely. This sea seems to have the ability to draw things in from all over the Atlantic like a catch-basin.” Is an entry from Columbus’ journal. The explorer also documented witnessing a fiery ball fall from the heavens.
