Cross-posts:
There are reports from tour operators that 4 launches from Xichang... are expected in May-June.

After YG-30-08 launched it was reported that they plan for another 7 (!) LM-2C launches this year. They also reported that procedures are being simplified to compress launch processing flows starting with the launch campaign for YG-30-10, so at least two more such triplets are going up soon.

Maybe even more since tour operators at Xichang is reporting 2 launches per month there through to August. Next one there should be FY-4B.

[Another success! The Long March 2C rocket successfully launched the remote sensing 30 group 09 satellites] At 14:30 on June 18, the Long March 2C carrier rocket was launched at the Xichang Satellite Launch Center, sending the remote sensing 30 group 09 satellites into the scheduled orbit. The launch mission was a complete success. Remote Sensing 30 Group 09 satellites are mainly used for electromagnetic environment detection, and the mission also launched a micro-nano satellite 14 stars in the Apocalypse constellation. This mission is the 375th launch of the Long March series of carrier rockets. Two consecutive victories in two days! (Photo by Zhao Cong)

At 06:30 UTC this morning, China successfully launched the Yaogan30 Group 9 trio of satellites -- with one rideshare -- into orbit from Xichang.
Joseph Navin has the mission overview and details.

Strange enough the U.S. see only three objects -- two spacecraft A and B and the upper stage C. Will monitor.
