When Australian satellites picked up possible debris from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, it seemed like the mystery – or at least the question of where the plane is now – was close to being solved. Yet, days of searching only yielded more blurry satellite images. Now searchers may have spotted the possible debris with their own eyes. On Monday, China's state-run Xinhua news agency reported that the crew of a Chinese IL-76 plane saw "suspicious objects" in the Indian Ocean. "From a height of 1,000 meters, there were two quite large objects, and some small, white fragments scattered within a radius of several kilometers," the report said. The Australian Maritime Safety Authority said it's been "advised about the reported objects sighted by a Chinese aircraft," and the "reported objects are within today’s search area and attempts will be made to relocate them."
