(CNN) - China has new satellite images showing a large object floating in the southern search area, the Malaysian transport minister said Saturday.
The object is 22 meters long and 30 meters wide, (72 feet by 98 feet) , Hishammuddin Hussein announced. He told reporters he's just gotten the information, and China will release more details in "coming hours."
The search for the missing Malaysian jetliner expanded Saturday as various countries dispatched additional aircraft and ships to scan the choppy waters of the southern Indian Ocean.

I would think it would be in tiny fragments instead of huge pieces if it’s in the ocean.
Right. All the satellites China has orbiting? Right.
Those are pretty big dimensions to be part of a plane.
I heard someone who has been looking at the currents down in that area say that after 2 weeks debris can be 300 to 1000 miles from the crash site.
Generalissimo Franco still dead.
Good for another week of wall-to-wall coverage on CNN.
Any thoughts on the reported tensions among Chinese friends and relatives of their missing passengers? Is it normal, or part of something else?
I didn’t tune into Fox last night, but between Megyn, Greta, and Sean since this happened, I’m thinking they’re no different than CNN.
Right where they put it?
And bodies of all the extras they didnt need?

Did they cover the "black hole" theory?
Did they cover the "zombie plane" theory?
I don’t know. I don’t watch CNN at all. I was just commenting on the wall-to-wall coverage. I like Megyn and Greta, but I did want to hear some news other than the missing plane.

about 80 miles to the SSW of the Aussie image. Now begs the question, what came first, the chicken or the egg?
The currents in this location are without a doubt west to east. This looks to be the same angle and size of the image we saw from the Aussies.
It’s possible that it’s not even the same piece of debris.
It’s 25% larger than the one the Aussie’s showed a couple days ago.
There is nothing on the aircraft...or part of the aircraft...that would be 70 feet wide and 90’ long. The fuselage is only 21’ wide....and the wings are only a little wider than that at their widest point.
Hello Uncle Chip. Do a Google search on “777 emergency slide”. The slides are designed to double as life rafts. They are about 20m x 5m. They would also appear as an “extended U” in a photo from a distance. That corresponds almost exactly to the Chinese photo.
Someone toss moochelle out of a plane?
Nope, both are dimension estimate at 24 meters. To me it looks like the same thing. The differences of clarity can easily be the angle and time of day each was taken.
That image per ABC News is 4 days old.
My guess is that the Chinese SAR vessels got the image/location fresh off the satellite, searched the area but found nothing, and so now are posting the picture.
If it is 4 days old, how old is the Aussie image?
Hello Nelson111. After reviewing 777 evacuation slides on google I am even more convinced that what we are looking at in the photo is an evacuation slide from the 777. I know the advertised dimensions are off but the relative dimensions from the photo shows it to be a slide.

Might just be an evac slide, which means jet may have landed somewhat intact.
Its been air dropped there a long time ago to perpetuate the misdirection.
And what if.....it is real, and possibly, just possibly survivors?
Really old and perhaps hundreds of miles from where it was seen.
The Aussie object was 24 meters long (79 feet)
The Chinese object is 22 meters long and 30 meters wide, (72 feet by 98 feet)
On the news last night someone said that the currents likely carried any debris from between 300 to 1000 miles away from the crash site over the last 14 days.
Updated dimensions are 20m x 13m.
Well the slide would float and it does appear to be something U-shaped.
Would that mean that the plane landed in the ocean and someone deployed the slide or could it deploy itself if it crashed???
Both dimensions are just estimations. 3 meters difference in a sat image is extremely plausible. I could import both into AutoCad but not knowing the camera information (lens, altitude and angle from perpendicular) that exercise would be about as good a guess as both.
So, now we are three full days days into this sat image and still nothing? Your hopes of this being anything of the aircraft are vaporizing rapidly and the 24th is approaching.
if a slide is 78 feet long and this U-shaped object is just as long, they would have to be a slide about 200’ long. I think you are fishing in the wrong waters. Remember the last time the Chinese gave us an image? I said all along it was a fishing boat with the net booms out to either side.

Let’s hope this is a real clue not another false hope. I just heard that it takes 5 hours to get to the scene a couple of hours of search time then another 5 hours to return to base. And satellite images can only be captured during cloudless conditions. Also this site s approx. 60 miles from the last satellite images.
Please notice the inflated appendages on the emergency slide photo. They also appear on the Chinese image at the top of the object.
Whatever happened to the narrative that "they" can read a license plate from space?
Thank you OwenKellog. I was not able to post the actual photo.
It goes on and on and on.... The less we know, the more we speculate.
Looks like a whale breaching to me. One of the earlier images looked like a whale too.
That’s my first thought at looking at the newest images. The object looks wider than previous images.
Some expert said today that the Chinese won’t show the world their most highest resolution images. Don’t want to show all your cards.
Ok, that settles it then. Did you ever consider all the other resources that have been thrown at this that they could not find it after three days of concentrated resources of P3’s and P8? I’m sure our enemies are just giddy with joy knowing that we can give them a sat image with chords and they still can’t find them.
With the range and loiter capabilities of Predators and Global Hawks with the real time abilities to zoom in and out in addition to a certain degree of spectrum analysis that they were not called into action?
It’s too big. To get an object that large it would have to include a large part of one of the wings and then it would have had to remain floating in choppy seas for over a week. I’d be willing to bet it’s an old boat section or broken up barge.
Good point. None of the talking heads or “experts” have mentioned these resources. Seems like they would be perfect for this job.
Only if the dimensions given out by the Chinese are correct. The relative (L/W) dimension looks to be the same as an evacuation slide per the above slide photo.
