On June 7, 2013 Russia launched a military satellite, designated Cosmos-2486. The satellite was delivered into orbit by a Soyuz-2.1b launcher, launched at 22:37:59 MSK (18:37:59 UTC) from the launch pad No. 4 of the launch complex No. 43 of the Plesetsk test site. Cosmos-2385 is an optical reconnaissance satellite of the new class of these satellites developed in Russia - Persona.

There is a very good video of the launch:

The satellite was registered by NORAD as an object 39177 (not 39178 as I reported earlier). It received international designation 2013-028A. According to NORAD data, the satellite was deployed on an orbit with an apogee of 703 km, perigee of 187 km, inclination of 98.3, and orbital period of 93.48 minutes. It is expected to perform a transfer to a sun-synchronous circular orbit with apogee of about 720 km in a few days. UPDATE: 06/10/2013:The satellite has been transferred to a nearly circular orbit 721x703 km.

This is the second Persona satellite. The first one, Cosmos-2441, launched in July 2008, reportedly failed briefly after the launch.
