The Beijing-3C satellite constellation captured its first image on Tuesday, according to a report from industry newspaper China Space News. The image was received by a satellite ground station in Beijing. It shows a collection of buildings next to a river with clear textures, distinct layers, rich detail, vibrant colors and an overall smooth image quality.

China launched a Long March-2D carrier rocket at 11:06 a.m. (Beijing Time) on Monday, sending Beijing-3C into a preset orbit. The constellation will be primarily used to provide remote sensing satellite data that has high spatial and temporal resolution.
