The drop zone looks like the Shijian-20, so this payload might be mythical Shijian-19。

Launched!

Replay of someone watching from a nearby house (or is that the Hilton hotel next door):



Edit: The CCTV footage from that stream is definitely an old one (probably from the December 2019 launch?)

【congratulate! #China successfully launched the Remote Sensing 41 satellite# [powerful]] Today, my country used the Long March 5 Y6 carrier rocket at the Wenchang Space Launch Site to successfully launch the Remote Sensing 41 satellite into space. The satellite successfully entered the predetermined orbit. The launch mission was a complete success. The satellite is a high-orbit optical remote sensing satellite. It is mainly used in the fields of land census, crop yield estimation, environmental management, meteorological warning and forecasting, and comprehensive disaster prevention and reduction. It can provide information services for the construction of the national economy.
