Same source lists launch time on August 5 as 23:00 BST.
23:00 BST - 8 hours = 1500 UTC.

I assume that the launch time is approximate.

Kind of "secret" launch?

https://news.cgtn.com/news/2021-08-06/China-launches-new-communication-satellite-Zhongxing-2E-12uVKMQb0pa/index.html

China launched a communication satellite into space aboard a Long March-3B carrier rocket early Friday, marking another success within 30 hours of a Long March-6 rocket launch mission.

The satellite, named Zhongxing-2E, was launched at 12:30 a.m. from Xichang Satellite Launch Center in southwest China's Sichuan Province, and has entered the preset orbit.

The Zhongxing-2E is a communication and broadcast satellite developed by the China Academy of Space Technology. It can provide transmission services for radio, television and broadband multimedia for national institutions, including broadcasting and television stations, wireless transmitting stations and cable television networks.

The launch is the 383rd flight mission of the Long March carrier rocket series.
