Seeing the popularity of my article on the Mary Celeste, I have compiled a list of 3 most bizarre events of the world.

Mysterious Disappearances in the Flannan Isle

The Flannan Isle are an island group in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. Their name was probably derived from the 7th century Irish priest St. Flannan. A lighthouse was constructed in the Flannan Isle in the year 1899. The first mysterious event occurred on 15th December 1900, when a passing ship noted that the light was not in operation in spite of the fact that three men manned the lighthouse and were responsible for keeping it lit. After a few days, the authorities sent a relief ship known as Hesperus to investigate the cause of the light being put off. Mr. Joseph Moore, who crewed the relief ship, found that the lighthouse was vacant, with no sign of the three men who were supposed to be their to keep the light burning. Everything was in an orderly manner in the lighthouse, no signs of violence and no evidence at all as to where these men might be. The mystery of their disappearance remains unsolved till date.

Crop Circles

The crop circles are patterns inscribed on fields by flattening crops such as rice,etc. They are also referred to as crop formations. These patterns appear suddenly overnight. With the real cause of the formation of these circles being a mystery, theories range from skeptic theories like man-made hoaxes and meteorological influence to paranormal theories like aliens. These crop circles have been appearing throughout the world.

The Mysterious Bermuda Triangle

The Bermuda Triangle is located in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean. It is also known as the Devil's Triangle since a number of ships and aircrafts have been reported to mysteriously disappear in this area. The reason of these disappearances are unknown. Skeptics use theories like tropical cyclones, violent weather, the gulf stream, etc. to explain the phenomenon whereas supernatural explanations range from aliens, parallel dimension portals, etc. The real cause is not known till now and will perhaps never be known to mankind.

I had never even heard of the Flannan Isle mystery. If the men had a boat I would wonder if they had all gone out fishing and met their fate that way, but I guess people would have noticed the missing boat. Odd, maybe water sirens!

Crop circles are causing controversies but the truth escapes us. We have only theories for these but no hard proof - siva
