Noted these 2 NOTAMs for July 20 between 10:25 am and 10:54 am LT
Well, is is interesting to note that Shijian-11-03 passed in the vicinity of Dalian, the suspected launch area, on July 20 at 02:43 UTC.
User kktt on the 9ifly chinese space forum supposed it could be a Julang-2 SLBM launch from Dalian, with the eastern area for 1st stage and the western one for the 2nd stage and warhead.(If so, it would feature direct overflight of Tianjin, a city as large as New York.)
If a launch from Bohai sea area was intended, why no NOTAM was issued for this area?
