The latest lead in the disappearance of Flight 307 hasn't been proven correct or incorrect, fueling questions as to whether the spotted objects in the Indian Ocean are really from the missing flight.
Satellites captured images of the objects about 14 miles (23 kilometers) from each other and about 1,500 miles (2,400 kilometers) southwest of Australia's west coast. The area is a remote, rarely traveled expanse of ocean far from commercial shipping lanes.
CNN's Tom Foreman took a deeper look at the possibilities on both sides of the debate on "New Day" Thursday.
Foreman said the information has credibility because Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott announced the findings before the Australian House of Representatives in Canberra.
No government would want to publicly announce wrong information and that makes the lead a big deal.
"New and credible information has come to light in relation to the search for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 in the southern Indian Ocean," Abbott said. "The Australian Maritime Safety Authority has received information based on satellite imagery of objects possibly related to the search."
However, Foreman added we must still be doubtful because the Chinese government also announced satellite data earlier in the search that later turned out to be nothing.
The reporter also mentioned the size of the debris as both a potential clue and a reason to be doubtful.
The commercial satellite images, taken Sunday, show two indistinct objects of "reasonable size," with the largest about 24 meters (79 feet) across, said John Young, general manager of emergency response for the Australian maritime agency.
"Can yet get something like that out of a plane like this?" Foreman asked? "Yes, you can."
But here's the doubt: "If it's that big and it came from this plane, how can it float for 12 days out here? That's a big question."
