Launch time will be at 18:08 UTC.

This will happen in dead middle of night on this side of Earth so I have an excuse to play with computer games an hour longer to wait for news. ;)

The official Chinese name of the payload "遥感三十号02组卫星" would translate as "Yaogan-30 Group 2"

Reminder to all. We're now waiting for Chinese State Media info. Those are the links to post in here as they are the only media reports that will add more information to compliment Rui's article.
