Tracking Maneuvers By Two Unusual Long March 5 Payloads

AGI's Commercial Space Operations Center Tracks Long March 5, AGI

"AGI's Commercial Space Operations Center (ComSpOC) is actively tracking China's Long March 5 launch, and the apparent two payloads entering orbit. This is, in part significant as press releases prior to the launch reportedly only registered one payload - the Shijian 17 experimental satellite. The characterization of the second object is still unknown, however COmSpOC has identified both objects making deliberate maneuvers. While these could be related to early orbit operations, the objects are in very unique and unusual orbits for typical operational spacecraft."
