More satellite imagery appears to prove that the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 is in the right area. Thailand has said that its satellite imagery shows 300 objects near the remote area in the southern Indian Ocean where the search has been focused for a days.
The imagery showed “300 objects of various sizes,” Anond Snidvongs, director of Thailand’s space technology development agency, said, reports The New York Daily News.
The objects were around 1,675 miles from Perth, Australia, in the general vicinity where planes from different countries have been searching. The images were taken on Monday and were posted on the agency’s site.
Snidvongs said that the objects were 125 miles from the 122 objects seen by a French satellite on Sunday. According to NBC News, Malaysian authorities were sent the images to further analyze.
The flight, which had 239 people onboard, has been missing since March 8. While none of the suspected wreckage has been found, Malaysian officials said Monday that the flight “ended” in the southern Indian Ocean and no one survived. China then demanded to see the satellite data that lead to that conclusion, as two-thirds of the passengers were Chinese.
