An intriguing and unexplained discovery has been made beneath the mysterious Bermuda Triangle.
The Bermuda Triangle is ominous enough as it is. It has a history of ships and aircrafts going missing within its boundaries, and as such, has also been described as the ‘devil’s triangle’.
Located roughly between Miami, Bermuda and Puerto Rico, it appears the triangular shaped section of ocean has been hiding another secret alongside its ship-disappearing act.
A Discovery Channel treasure hunter, Darrell Miklos, has been exploring shipwrecks in the Bermuda Triangle, using maps created in the 1960s by NASA astronaut, Gordon Cooper.
His various discoveries have been featured over two seasons of Cooper’s Treasure – a docuseries on the Discovery Channel.
Investigating ‘magnetic anomalies’ in the ocean, Miklos and his team dived in an undisclosed location near the Bahamas.
Miklos spoke to the Daily Mail about the mission, saying:
We were doing a scene where I was sitting in a two man submersible. We were out in the Bahamas and we were on an English shipwreck trail, somehow related to Sir Francis Drake.
I was trying to identify shipwreck material based on one of the anomaly readings on Gordon’s charts when I noticed something that stuck out, that shocked me.
It was a formation unlike anything I’ve ever seen related to shipwreck material, it was too big for that. It was also something that was completely different from anything that I’ve seen that was made by nature.
While originally considering it could have been a shipwreck, Miklos soon realised he’d spotted a USO – an unidentified submerged object – beneath the Bermuda Triangle.
The object had a large dome at the centre, with 15 horizontal cylinder structures jutting out from around it, each measuring as much as 300 feet long.
Geophysicists on the team surmised, the coral covering the structures appeared to be more than 5000 years old.
The discovery left the team confused, as strong currents at the location mean coral shouldn’t have been able to grow on the wreck.
The diameter of the site totals around 600 feet – the length of two US football fields.
Miklos believes the wreck could be evidence of extraterrestrials.
Describing the sight, he said:
It’s almost like there are five arms coming out of a steep wall cliff and each one of these is the size of a gun on a battleship. They’re enormous and then there’s five over here and five over there, 15 in total.
There’s identical formations in three different areas and they don’t look nature made, they don’t look man made, certainly nothing I’ve ever seen based on my experience and I have years of experience at doing this, we’ve identified multiple different types of shipwreck material, this doesn’t match or look anything like that.
Referring back to the astronaut-made maps, Miklos found Cooper had written ‘unidentified object’ where the USO had been found.
Miklos explained how this led him to believe it might be an alien object.
I investigated some of Gordon’s charts, I realized that there was something else on there that Gordon was referring to.
Then it made sense to me why it wasn’t identified as a shipwreck… he had to mean it might be something from another world.
Gordon believed in aliens. He believed that we had visitors from other planets and he also believed that a lot of these things landed in this particular part of the world.
He added that he was interested in exploring the site further, saying:
I want to investigate it.
I want to see what it is, because it may be nature made, just a freak of nature, but given its placement in this particular part of the Caribbean and given what Gordon has told me about visitors from another planet and the things that I’ve seen, I think it’s definitely worthwhile investigating.
All I can say is, if the aliens come in anger after we disturb their ancient site, I hope they go after Miklos first.
