Yaogan-32 Group pair

Yaogan-32 Group 01 launch thread, launched October 9, 2018, 0243 UTC.

Cross-post:
According to an official post-launch article about the LM-2C launch today, the launch team is staying at Jiuquan for preparing yet another LM-2C/YZ-1S launch, this time with LM-2C s/n Y41 & YZ-1S s/n Y4.

The obvious candidate for the payload is YG-32 Group 02, which is being prepared for launch there according to an official article last week.

A spaceflightfans.cn listing appeared on August 18, giving September 12 as the launch date, 19 days after the previous launch from the same launch complex.

According to the video a Sylda type object should also be found in orbit
From that post on the first Yaogan-32 pair, an adapter will remain in orbit together with the two satellites. About how long will it take for its orbit to decay so that it reenters?

我国成功发射遥感三十二号02组卫星
Our country successfully launched the remote-sensing 32-group 02 satellite
2021-09-13 15:49
据央视军事微博消息,今天15时43分,我国在酒泉卫星发射中心用长征二号丙运载火箭/远征一号S上面级,成功将遥感三十二号02组卫星发射升空。卫星顺利进入预定轨道,发射任务获得圆满成功。此次任务是长征系列运载火箭第389次飞行。
According to CCTV’s military Weibo news, at 15:43 today, my country used the Long March 2C carrier rocket/expedition 1S upper stage at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center to successfully launch the remote sensing 32 02 satellites into the air. The satellite successfully entered the scheduled orbit and the launch mission was a complete success. This mission is the 389th flight of the Long March series of carrier rockets.

Looking at the search, the first post that has the info included that I can find was posted 11min after T-0 so looks like there was an accidental premature data release

https://m.weibo.cn/detail/4680995238052094


cctv military also sent out a post but that has since been deleted (someone else got a screenshot of it)

And the same launch time on September 14 has passed without notice.

Is it possible to be sure a launch did *not* take place?  Could an early failure have been covered up under the new rules?

In terms of publicly available information, perhaps someone has already commissioned imagery of Jiuquan?
It wouldn't answer all possibilities, but it would answer some.

Yes, but they do not routinely announce their observations!

A rumor has surfaced that the rocket had a mechanical problem with a valve, which clearly delayed the launch, and that this delay could have affected the launch of the LZ-1A rocket that was scheduled for September 18.

If you are referring to the rumor, I don't know, if it is true that there is a problem with a valve I suppose they will do their best to fix it on the platform, but if they don't manage to do so, it may be necessary to lower the payload, although I don't know if this is possible on the CZ-2C/YZ-1S.

Depends if any membranes on the rocket from attempted fuel and oxidizer load need replacing if there was indeed an attempt.

That's why I think that the FOBS test was launched on CZ-2C from the ZL-7 in Taiyuan. Thanks to Sentinel, we can see some changes on the launch pad between August 26 and 28.

The one from the 24th August launch wasn't catalogued, but it apparently survived three orbits with a perigee around 100 km before decaying over Africa.  Seem to recall you discussing this.
