    I wonder if anybody has seen or heard from the latest Chinese 
    low-orbit reconnaissance satellite Yaogan Weixing 5 
    (2008-064A/33456) launched 15 Dec 2008. My understanding is that 
    this one is a relatively large optical reconnaissance bird 
    which will replace the 2000-2004 family of Ziyuan-2/Jianbing-3 
    satellites (26481, 27550 and 28470). It'd be interesting to see 
    if the four look alike or not.
    Best wishes,
