There is only two days since last launch, so this might be solid CZ-11.

Looks like a GTO launch.

Yes, so it's the first time GTO on the CZ-11... But the rocket hasn't a big capacity in GTO...

Looks like a GTO launch.

Does the zone fits with previous CZ-3B and CZ-11 launches? After all it could be a satellite to low inclination LEO instead.

The thing is that I have never seen Xichang using the 2 main launch complexes within so little time of each other; perhaps the Chinese have improved their pad work flow to allow this?

The drop zone is far than two CZ-11 drop zones in past.

is this new CZ-11A because drop zone is far than two CZ-11s.

OK, I now see this is probably not a GTO launch because of:

(1) 29-30 min shift of launch time (precession?);
(2) Another danger zone in the Pacific:

Chuangxin-16 was launched!

T-0 was 02:36 UTC.

Payload was given a very generic “science experiments & technology validation” purpose; CAS was mentioned as the manufacturer.

This claims there are 2 satellites on board, but I cannot find this being mentioned in Chinese sources.

China launches new satellite via Kuaizhou-1A carrier rocket
   
XICHANG, Aug. 23 (Xinhua) -- China on Tuesday successfully launched a new satellite into space from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in southwest China's Sichuan Province.

The Chuangxin-16 satellite, developed by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, was launched at 10:36 a.m. (Beijing Time) by a Kuaizhou-1A carrier rocket and entered the planned orbit successfully.

The satellite will mainly be used for scientific experiments and verification of new technologies.

The launch was the 16th mission by Kuaizhou-1A series rockets.
