Full Answer

In his voyage to America, Christopher Columbus wrote that he came across an area of fire and light that his compass could not detect. In 1918, the USS Cyclops, a cargo ship, sank inexplicably in the same area. Similar events happened to naval vessels in 1941. In 1945, several Navy bombers of Flight 19 had difficulty navigating the area, and a rescue plane vanished. In 1963, the USS Marine Sulphur Queen sank. It is possible that these disappearances were caused by magnetic fields, storms, navigation errors or waterspouts.
