If you are reading this right now, you can help search for the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 that disappeared days ago.
U.S. satellite operator Digital Globe is enabling anyone with Internet access to help locate the missing jet via the website tomnod.com. The company has deployed two of its five satellites to fly over several of the search zones in the Gulf of Thailand and the South China Sea, and is broadcasting those images through the website.
The plane may have changed course before it disappeared — meaning that two separate seas need to be searched. It’s an area of thousands of square miles.
The website encourages viewers to look for any signs or clues that may point to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370’s whereabouts. Here are the steps:
- Open the link tomnod.com on your browser.
- Start browsing through the satellite images.
- Tag areas of the images with labels, such as “Wreckage” for airplane remains, “Raft” to pinpoint life raft vessels visible in the water, “Oil Slicks” for traces of oil in the sea, and “Other” to mark miscellaneous objects that seem suspicious.
The flight, carrying 239 passengers, disappeared more than four days ago between Malaysia and Vietnam.
