Second orbital launch attempt of a private Chinese rocket, this one built by OneSpace (=> OneSpace thread). [First attempt was by Landspace in October 2018.]

Spaceflightfans.cn today published the March 25 date, time TBD, launch site "?". OneSpace OS-X1 launched from Juiquan (source), so maybe the OS-M will go from there, too?

As far as I undestand this, Lingque 1B (or Lingyi 1B) is the second of three technology demonstration satellites for a remote sensing micro/nanosat constellation. The first launched with Jilin-1 one month ago, and the third is scheduled for April 2019. Complete constellation will have 132 sats.

spaceflightfans.cn now has changed the launch site from ? to Juiquan. They follow this forum and did not add a source; may have copied my assumption on launch site.

March 25 is local time, may be March 24 UTC.

The rocket has arrived at Jiuquan

From the Chinese launch schedule thread:

http://www.spaceflightfans.cn/event/os-m-rocket-launch-xxx?instance_id=2405
The launch of OS-M is now on March, 27.

There's been no news since the pictures above and no air space closure notices had appeared as well so we might just have to trust the above source.  :-X

The twitter posts were made at

T-3 days 23 Mar 10:23 pm
T-2 days 24 Mar 9:04 pm

I believe these times correspond to PST (as Twitter is located in San Francisco). Thus, times in UTC are

T-3 days 24 Mar 05:23
T-2 days 25 Mar 04:04

Thus, launch should be around 04:00 to 05:30 UTC (12 pm to 1:30 pm local) on Wednesday, 27 March.

Possible launch time around 0900 UTC or 1000 UTC, but no official confirmation that tomorrow's attempt is a GO.

There should be more drop zones for a four stage rocket. But I didn't find any more NOTAMS, either.

Launch time is 17:39 local according to spaceflightfans.cn => 09:39 UTC.
