The Bermuda Triangle Mystery may have been solved by American scientists who are blaming unusually shaped clouds for causing high winds and waves and leading to the disappearance of an unusually high number of ships and planes in the area.

In a Science channel documentary, scientists from Arizona State University pointed out that hexagonal cloud formations are common in the area, according to the International Business Times. These cloud formations were picked up by NASA satellite imagery and are commonly associated with microbursts, which can impact ships and planes.

According to Popular Mechanics, Randy Cerveny said in the documentary that the microbursts can create “air bombs” that come down from the bottom of the cloud to the water, disrupting any planes flying through the microburst and creating waves up to 40 feet high that can impact ships.

Although the hexagonal clouds may explain some rough weather in the Bermuda Triangle area, most scientists (even those in the documentary) don’t feel that any big breakthrough has been made in explaining why an unusual amount of ships and planes seem to disappear or be destroyed there.

In fact, Cerveny said in a later statement to USA Today that his observations about hexagonal clouds on the documentary were not a big breakthrough that explained unusual activity in the area. Other scientists have said that the Bermuda Triangle disappearances were not in statistically significant numbers given how many ships and planes travel there, or that some were even made up to bolster the idea that the area between Florida, Bermuda and Puerto Rico had an unusual number of disappearances.
