During a recent Facebook scrolling session, I came across a 2019 post from Kenosha Revisited that talked about the haunted Lake Michigan Triangle and I immediately needed to know more.

I found an article from medium.com that listed some of the most famous unexplained  events of the Lake Michigan Triangle that include;

  • Several UFO and weird light sightings
  • Discovery of an upside-down schooner, and more!
