People are convinced TikTok has solved the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle

TikTok users think they’ve finally solved the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle.

Also known as the Devil’s Triangle, there is a longstanding urban legend about this vague area in the North Atlantic Ocean where several aircraft and ships are said to have disappeared under strange circumstances.

And now people are saying it’s all to do with aliens. Of course.

TikToker Miguel Gonzalez posted a video of a screengrab from Google Maps on the island of Bermuda.

He shows his camera zooming in on a zoo, taking a virtual walk around the area, and then moves the cursor up to the sky.

A typical image of a unidentified flying object (UFO) hovering over Bermuda appears.

Some have claimed this proves aliens are ‘real’ and that it was ‘crazy’ people hadn’t spotted it before.

But others said the ‘UFO’ was actually just a distorted image of a bird.

Some claimed it was even a leaf from a tree, or a drone.

The Bermuda Triangle myth has been largely dismissed as sensationalism over the years, with experts claiming the number of ships and aircraft reported missing in the area is not significantly greater than in any other part of the ocean when looking at it in proportion.

A mum from Suffolk also thought this week that she saw something out of this world after seeing flashing lights up in the sky.

Kirsty Mason, who lives in Barrow near Bury St Edmunds, saw three objects flashing red and blue from her daughter Bella’s, 11, upstairs bedroom on Tuesday night.

The 35-year-old said: ‘We were really excited by it.

‘I 100% think we saw a UFO and now I am wondering if anyone else saw it.’

A new paper released this week suggested the reason why aliens have not yet been found is because there is unlikely to be enough oxygen on any other planet other than Earth to be able to start fires – limiting the development of technology.
