Wuzhai
3855'N 11150'E

The Taiyuan space launch facility located southwest of Beijing [at 3730'N 11236'E] is designated Wuzhai by US Space Command. The location of the Wuzhai facility is the source of some confusion, since some sources mistakenly report that it is located at 3836'N 10812'E or 3748'N 11130'E. The town of Wuzhai is located some 170 km to the northwest of the Taiyuan launch facility, which seems rather distant to be part of a single facility.
