In his book, The Great Lakes Triangle, aviator Jay Gourley says,
 “The Great Lakes account for more unexplained disappearances per unit area than the Bermuda Triangle.”
Theories related to UFOs and aliens wandering in the sky over the triangle of Lake Michigan arose after the mysterious disappearance of Northwest Airlines Flight 2501. On June 23, 1950, the plane was flying from New York to Seattle with a stop in Minneapolis. On the way over Lake Michigan, it seemed to simply disappear into thin air.
Does the powerful force have anything to do with the Lake Michigan Stonehenge which was discovered in 2007 by Northwestern Michigan College professor Mark Holley? Holley and his team discovered the rock formation 40 feet below the waters of Lake Michigan while mapping shipwrecks. It features a similar alignment to the famous formation found in England that is famous for it's irregular activity. It’s theorized the one beneath Lake Michigan contains similar properties.
