More possible objects from MH370 spotted by a Thai satellite.

A Thai satellite has detected approximately 300 objects in the search area of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 in the southern Indian Ocean.

The images below were taken on March 24, 2014, by the Thaichote, Thailand Earth Observation Satellite, which is a remote sensing satellite for natural resources observation.

Previously, the images from a French satellite purported to show 122 floating objects up to 23m (75ft) in length.

The latest Thai images show at least 300 floating objects scattered over an area about 2,700 km (1,680 miles) south-west of Perth.

The objects were about 200 km (120 miles) from the site of the French satellite images, which were tagged as "the most credible lead so far".

Thailand’s Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency, told the BBC some objects ranged from 2 m to 15 m in size. However, it was not possible to immediately identify whether these were the debris from MH370 flight or not.

It would be recalled that Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 disappeared on March 8, 2014, with 239 people on board. No debris has been recovered from the ocean so far, but ships are trying to reach this remote area.

Searches by planes were delayed on March 27, 2014, Thursday, due to poor visibility.
