"Captured one days before opposition"?

 

Yet the caption (and subject) say May 31?

Possibly an error in grammar.  Maybe the meaning is something like this, "It's one day before opposition, so I'm sharing this captured image of Saturn."  

 

It's a sweet capture though!

Sorry for the confusion. The image was captured yesterday. The date should be 2021 July 31 17:43 UT. See image below with the corrected date. Regards.

You changed the colour on the "fixed timestamp" image, but regardless, that's a very nice sharp image.
