A Chinese satellite may have found Malaysian Flight 370. They have found three floating objects that could be the wreckage of the missing airplane. According to March 12 report by CNN, the satellite photos were taken on Sunday, March 9.

The floating objects are about 13 by 18 meters, 14 by 19 meters and 24 by 22 meters. These are large objects to find floating in the ocean.

China's State of Administration for Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense released the coordinates. The floating objects believed to be Flight 370 were found at 105.63 east longitude and 6.7 north latitude. That is just north of where the search has been taking place.

Despite the announcement made by China, it is unknown if the floating objects are part of the missing Malaysian airplane. An announcement had been made that oil slicks had also been found, but those were proven not to be associated with the missing airplane.

At the time of publication, it was unknown why it took China three days to release information regarding its satellite photos. With all of the conspiracy theories regarding the missing Malaysian airplane, this latest news may only add to them.
