    Malaysia Airlines MH370 / TomNod crowd-search

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     MikeSeberger said he read an article about DigitalGlobe's crowdsourced search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 and decided to help out. He said he saw this image very quickly after he started looking at sections of the map. "At first, I skipped past it, thinking, 'Nah. No way I would find anything THAT quickly,' he said. "But then I kept scrolling back to it and thinking to myself, 'It DOES resemble a plane.'"

    He said he couldn't tell what section of the map he was looking at, but he flagged it so someone else could take a look. He didn't see anything else that looked unusual.

    Seberger said he thinks it's unlikely that this image shows the missing plane and assumes that he proably saw a ship that was in the area.

    You can read more about the crowdsourcing effort on CNN.com.

    I was able to get onto the TomNod site earlier today, and found a VERY interesting satellite image. Scale looks proper for a 777-200. I don't know how to tell the lat / long of that map, but am hoping by tagging it on TomNod that they will take a closer look and notify the searchers / authorities if appropriate. The website seems overloaded with traffic, but the link is: http://www.tomnod.com/nod/challenge/malaysiaairsar2014/map/6060 (image attached).
