HAIKOU, Sept. 24 (Xinhua) -- The Long March-7 Y4 rocket, carrying Tianzhou-3, blasted off from the Wenchang Spacecraft Launch Site in the southern island province of Hainan. On the eve of the launch, many aerospace photography enthusiasts rushed to Wenchang to record China's aerospace development through their lens.

Yang Hao, a 22-year-old young man from southwest China's Guizhou Province, arrived in Haikou, capital city of Hainan five days before the launch. As a member of a team of aerospace photography enthusiasts, he not only needs to shoot the launch himself, but also is responsible for coordinating dozens of enthusiasts.

Guan Tianyu, a freelance photographer from northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, arrived in Wenchang two days before the launch. It's his third time to shoot a rocket launch. For him, it is absolutely shocking to watch a rocket launch on the spot.
