Long March 2C launch of Yaogan-30 satellites, July 2019 (Xinhua) China launched a set of reconnaissance satellites Friday. A Long March 2C lifted off from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center at 11:57 pm EDT Thursday (0357 GMT Friday) carrying three Yaogan-30 reconnaissance satellites. The launch came with little advance notice by Chinese authorities.
