Seems so - that shows an approximate launch time of ~00:40 UTC on December 25.

Do we have anything on the payloads for this mission?

It is another super secret military launch on a super secret rocket…

Haven't done my homework on these, but given previous launches we could assume 3 spacecraft, Strela-3M/Rodnik-S numbers 7, 8 and 9.

Stressing the could and assume part of the above line :)

Thanks Chaps. I'll get something put together for an article (and upload from midnight mass! That's rather naughty! ;D)

This was supposed to have launched 15 mins ago, right?

That's 0031 UTC.    Rough translation:  Around 0616  (0216 UTC) the three satellites will be deployed and will get
the names Kosmos-2488, 2489 and 2490.  Target orbit is 1500 km; parts of the rocket fall in the Barents and the Arctic.

.. and by my estimate the payload/Briz-KM stack should currently be coasting in approx 100 x 1500 km transfer
orbit, with circularization burn due around 0145 UTC, so 15 min from now.

One object now cataloged - 2013-076A in a 1469 x 1508 km x 82.50 deg orbit.
So, at least roughly the right orbit - tentative mission success (perigee is a touch low but not completely out of family)
