Australian Aircraft Spots New Objects in Hunt for Flight 370

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) -- An Australian aircraft searching for the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has spotted two objects that could be retrieved by a naval vessel in the coming hours, authorities said Monday.

One object is "a grey or green circular object," and the other is "an orange rectangular object," the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said.

They are separate from "suspicious objects" reported earlier Monday by a Chinese military plane that was involved in search efforts in the same region, authorities said.

The reports from the search teams combing an isolated area of the southern Indian Ocean have once again raised hopes of meaningful progress in the hunt for the plane.

But none of the sighted objects have so far been firmly linked to Flight 370, which disappeared more than two weeks ago over Southeast Asia with 239 people on board.
