Ancient Aliens – Mysterious Places: Mysterious places can be found around the Earth, and, inexplicably, UFOs are often sited near these mystical areas.
Planes and ships unaccountably disappear in the infamous Bermuda Triangle. Strange magnetic anomalies in Mexico’s Zone of Silence have not only drawn missiles off their course, but seem to pull meteorites out of the sky. An ancient doorway carved into a sheer rock wall in Peru’s Puerta de Hayu Marka is said to be a portal to other worlds. Markawasi’s plateau is filled with strange rock formations allegedly left behind by an ancient advanced civilization. What connections do these and other “hot spots” share? Is it possible that ancient extraterrestrials also knew about these mysterious places?
Ancient Aliens – Mysterious Places
The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil’s Triangle or Hurricane Alley, is a loosely defined region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean where a number of aircraft and ships are said to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Most reputable sources dismiss the idea that there is any mystery.
The vicinity of the Bermuda Triangle is amongst the most heavily traveled shipping lanes in the world, with ships frequently crossing through it for ports in the Americas, Europe and the Caribbean islands. Cruise ships and pleasure craft regularly sail through the region, and commercial and private aircraft routinely fly over it. Popular culture has attributed various disappearances to the paranormal or activity by extraterrestrial beings. Documented evidence indicates that a significant percentage of the incidents were spurious, inaccurately reported, or embellished by later authors.

As a result of the US Air Force recovery operation there, a number of myths and legends relating to the area arose. Reportedly, a local resident hired to guard the crash debris during recovery operations helped spread these rumors. Legends include “strange magnetic anomalies that prevent radio transmission”, mutations of flora and fauna, extraterrestrial visitations, and a Mexican pilot who supposedly first reported that his radio experienced unexplained malfunctions while flying over the area in the 1930s. The area is sometimes compared to the Bermuda Triangle, as both are located between parallels 26 and 28.
However, when compasses and communications equipment are shown to work properly in the zone, local new age and paranormal enthusiasts claim that “the zone moves around”. Residents, who do not accept the zone’s existence, call such enthusiasts “zoneros” or “silenciosos”, and say their activities have an adverse effect on the region. Nonetheless, the legend is now being used to help promote tourism in the region.
