DSC_0070Australian authorities said they may be close to finally discovering where Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 crashed, thanks to a new analysis of satellite images.

The ill-fated flight disappeared on March 8, 2014 and the search for wreckage from the flight was suspended in January after one of the largest searches of its kind failed to produce any significant results

CSIRO, or the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, the government agency for scientific research in Australia, recently analyzed data taken two weeks after the plane disappeared. The objects CSIRO found “were probably man-made,” the agency said.

The objects were seen 124 miles (200 kilometers) west of the 7th arc, where it is believed the plane went down. Drift analysis shows that this is approximately where the debris would have been if the plane did go down where initially thought.

Ultimately, the decision on whether to resume the search for the missing Boeing 777 would be up to the Malaysian government, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau said in a statement on Wednesday.
