Satellite discovered 122 flying objects would be from HM370

None of the objects were seen in a second come a frustrating fact that has been repeated several times in search of tickets from Malaysia Airlines who disappeared on March 8 with 239 people on board

A satellite seeking the remains of Malaysia Airlines lost plane captured images of 122 objects in the Indian Ocean that could be wreckage of the lost aircraft, a senior Malaysian government said Wednesday.

The objects sighted "are the most credible lead we have," said the official.

Hishammuddin Hussein, Malaysian Defense Minister said that objects are more than 2,500 kilometers of Australia, near where other objects previously detected satellites. The objects vary in length, ranging from one to 23 meters (1-25 yards).

Hishammuddin said the pictures were taken on Sunday and were transmitted by Airbus Defence and Space Company, a division of Airbus Group, based in France. This company operates in the fields of satellite operations and satellite communications.

Several floating objects have been detected by planes and satellites over the last week, including Wednesday when the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA for its acronym in English) released a message on Twitter saying he had located three objects more. The agency said that two objects were spotted from an aircraft, while a plane from New Zealand started a blue object.
