Without a doubt, one of the most popular subject matters for cable channel mystery shows is the Bermuda Triangle. New shows are created every year and old ones are repeated regularly on the History Channel, Learning Channel, National Geographic Channel and others. Virtually every show includes an interview with Bruce Gernon, who survived a direct encounter with the BT phenomenon. Usually, his story is referenced early and then featured near the end.
One recent episode of The History Channel’s Mystery Quest, however, focused almost entirely on Bruce Gernon’s story and the on-going research he is doing on ‘electronic fog’ with University of Nebraska professor David Pares. Bruce and I wrote about that fog in our Bermuda Triangle book, THE FOG. In the Mystery Quest episode, the narrator mentions speculation that UFOs are related to the Bermuda Triangle phenomenon, but nothing more is said about the matter.
Now, Bruce recently contacted me about an e-mail he received in which a viewer of that program spotted three UFOs passing by at the 36:48 to 36:50 mark in the video when Gernon and Pares were flying into the BT. I watched it and found the objects he mentioned. I continued watching and a couple minutes further into the video Professor Pares is receiving extraordinary readings on his meters that measure levels of electronic energy and electromagnetism. Right at the 38:00 mark, I noticed two more objects dart past the plane, which was being filmed from another plane. Then again, while Pares is still talking about these readings, there’s another UFO passing over at 38:57.
I mentioned these other UFO appearances to Bruce in an e-mail and told him that the last one might be light reflections. Here’s how he responded:
“Yes, they might be light reflections from the windows inside the plane but it seems strange they are there at the same time Pares is picking up the huge electromagnetic readings. The object at 38:57 looks almost like a semi-invisible UFO is passing right over us. He was getting those readings twice–each time we passed directly overhead of the famous Bimini Road. I haven’t talked to Pares yet. I will let you know if he comes up with anything.”
So even if the objects are light reflections, their appearance is a synchronicity, coming just as the meters bounce nearly off the scale. Something strange was happening.
