Oh wow! This is apparently the first stage of the Long March 2C launched today from Xichang smashing into a part of Fuquan city, downrange in Guizhou province, China. That's very toxic hypergolic propellant exploding, but at least the area was likely evacuated ahead of launch. pic.twitter.com/4nUCkaSznK

All in a day’s work for China’s space program, which launched for the 18th time today. The Long March 2C successfully launched a pair of secret satellites.
