  Apogee, Perigee & Period

The perigees (point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass) of the satellites range from 420km to 1,087km, with the average perigee being 609.4km from the Earth, while the apogees (point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass) of the satellites range from 438km to 1,111km, with the average apogee being 624.0km from the Earth. The longest period a satellite takes to orbit around the Earth is 107 minutes.


Highlights on some of the satellites launched via Long March 2C:

Yaogan 30-9-1.

Long March-2C launches Yaogan-30-09 and Tianqi-14

Yaogan 30-9-1 is a military satellite operated by Chinese Ministry of National Defense (China) for the purpose of earth observation (Electronic Intelligence).

Constructed by China Academy of Space Technology (CAST) (China), it was launched into space on 18 June 2021 using Long March 2C as the launch vehicle from Xichang Satellite Launch Center. Yaogan 30-9-1 orbits around the Earth as a non-polar inclined LEO satellite.

Yaogan 30-9-1 navigates with the COSPAR ID 2021-055A and NORAD ID 48860.

With an orbital eccentricity of 6.46E-04, the satellite's perigee, which is the point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass, is 592km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 601km. It takes 96 minutes to orbit the Earth at an inclination of 35 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.

Tianqi-14.

China launches new remote-sensing satellite group

  Heaviest satellite launched by Guodian Gaoke into space at 50 kg

Designed for technology development, Tianqi-14 is a commercial satellite operated by Guodian Gaoke (China).

Constructed by Guodian Gaoke (China), it was launched into space on 18 June 2021 using Long March 2C as the launch vehicle from Xichang Satellite Launch Center. Tianqi-14 orbits around the Earth as a non-polar inclined LEO satellite.

Tianqi-14 has a launch mass of 50 kg and navigates with the COSPAR ID 2021-055E and NORAD ID 48864.

With an orbital eccentricity of 8.62E-04, the satellite's perigee, which is the point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass, is 587km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 599km. It takes 97 minutes to orbit the Earth at an inclination of 35 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.
