Easier to Find Containers

I saw another post on the forums of someone saying that their ship was badly damaged and they had no materials, no working sensors and were explaining that it is essentially an immediate death sentence. This is since they have absolutely no way of finding resources to repair themselves if they have no scanning probes left. I know that in a lot of systems there are containers floating around in space but they are impossible to see unless you fly through the whole area (not enough time due to interceptors) or if you use a scanning probe. My suggestion is that items like containers periodically flash or shine, as if they have mirrors on them reflecting light enabling someone who is a great distance away to see them and head towards them.
