  Apogee, Perigee & Period

The perigees (point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass) of the satellites range from 241km to 1,201km, with the average perigee being 604.0km 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 1,213km, with the average apogee being 629.1km from the Earth. The longest period a satellite takes to orbit around the Earth is 947 minutes.


Highlights on some of the satellites launched from Taiyuan Launch Center:

Beijing-3.

China launches Long March 2D rocket carrying Beijing-3 and three other satellites

Designed for earth observation (Optical Imaging), Beijing-3 is a commercial satellite operated by 21st Century Aerospace Technology (21AT) (China).

Delivered via Long March 2D (launch vehicle) from Taiyuan Launch Center, it was launched into space on 11 June 2021 and orbits the Earth as a sun-synchronous LEO satellite. Beijing-3 was constructed by Chinese Academy of Space Technology (CASC) (China).

Beijing-3 navigates with the COSPAR ID 2021-050A and NORAD ID 48840.

With an orbital eccentricity of 1.09E-03, the satellite's perigee, which is the point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass, is 487km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 502km. It takes 95 minutes to orbit the Earth at an inclination of 98 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.
