What is the Bermuda Triangle?

The Bermuda Triangle is an imaginary triangle in the Atlantic Ocean between Florida, Puerto Rico, and Bermuda. Planes and ships have disappeared in the area, and some people blame the disappearances on supernatural forces. There are also natural explanations, though. The U.S. Navy notes that this is one of two places on Earth where a magnetic compass points towards true north, instead of magnetic north, so planes or ships could get off course if they don’t make adjustments. The area also has very unpredictable weather. Storms and water spouts can turn up suddenly and wreck a plane or ship, and the fast currents can sweep away any trace of a wreck.
