As usual, remember this is a 9 hour long mission. So, still a long way to go!!

Apparently the weather's been nice, allowing for "several excellent BBQs" ;D

6303390280

Rui, where have you seen this? I have broken my eyes to see this number. I got 6305390280 from photos and video, but not sure...

About the one minute mark on the roll out video, low resolution, does kind of look like 33. What photograph have you found?

Congrats to ILS on a sucessful mission!

2 objects have been cataloged:

2017-057A/42942 in 4013 x 35832 km x 23.37° (Asiasat-9)
2017-057B/42943 in 3550 x 34437 km x 23.79° (Briz-M)
I get about 1509 m/s to GEO, so a good orbit for a heavy satellite.
