There has been the occasional polar orbit launch from Xichang.
I doubt it,  but could this NOTAM be related to this LM-2C launch

The rocket would have to take a 90 degree turn to match that from Xichang.....  ;D

Apparently, the Launch about this NOTAM will come from TSLC.
Last time I checked up 9ifly, they gave a time frame for this CZ-2C launch: 29th around noon

The funny thing is that if this is true this will fly while Elon Musk is talking about Mars. A literal "flying under space geeks' radars"! ;) ;) ;)

Looks like a ~35° LEO launch with an upper stage

Launch code: 07-78
http://www.kygov.gov.cn/xwzx/tzgg/zwgg/201709/t20170925_2788572.html
AFAIU this CZ-2C launch was initially planned to take place prior to the CZ-3B/Chinasat-9A launch in June which had launch codename "07-79"

It would likely have a CTS Upper Stage because AFAIK SD, SMA, and CKPM US's have never flown from XSLC.

"07-79" is the start code for the zhongxing-9A。

yes, which is what Chinasat-9A is. 07-78 was skipped when 07-79 was launched and 07-78 is expected with this CZ-2C flight.

Launch success has been confirmed (T-0 at 04:21 UTC) - and there are 3 sats on board grouped together as "Yaogan 30 Group 01"!  :o
