Today is December 4th and in 1872 (141 years ago) the Mary Celeste, a 282-ton sailing ship, was discovered floating in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. On board, none of her cargo was missing and her crew’s belongings remained undisturbed. It was all completely normal… except that every single person was gone. Vanished.
The Mary Celeste was a ghost ship.
