The origin & geographical area of Bermuda Triangle

To unlock the mystery of Bermuda Triangle it is important to understand the geographical status of that particular location.

Maybe the origin started in the year 1492 or 1493 when Christopher Columbus started his journey to explore the world. When he travelled through the Atlantic Ocean he saw a mysterious meteor which landed on the ocean with lots of pressure and force. As he quoted there was a huge amount of light when the meteor crashed into the ocean. According to the records, this was the first incident which was recorded in that region. Many people believe that meteor is the source of origin of the Bermuda Triangle. Later Christopher Columbus confirmed that because of a meteor hit the compass reading was also not accurate. He tried several times and noticed that there were variations of compass reading in the nearby area after the meteor hit.
