How do I see broadcast time and time a transaction is added to a block

I know there could be a delay between when a transaction is broadcasted to the network and when that transaction is picked up and added to the blockchain.

Is there a way, using a block explorer to see when a transaction was broadcasted and when it was mined?

I am using https://www.blockchain.com/explorer and I see it tells when a transaction was broadcasted, for example picking this random transaction

https://www.blockchain.com/btc/tx/e32f1ae9069342e4b2627837badd2da31e3c0e59792e7464f646d92575a29a82

you find:

> This transaction was first broadcast to the Bitcoin network on October 18, 2021 at 5:00 PM GMT+2. The transaction is currently unconfirmed by the network. At the time of this transaction, 0.27324666 BTC was sent with a value of $16,967.52. The current value of this transaction is now $16,967.52. Learn more about how transactions work.

But how do I see when this transaction was eventually mined (ie added and confirmed on the blockchain)

    Nope. It’s a decentralized network, so different nodes can receive transactions at different times.

    *edit*

    This remark was only meant for the time a transaction is broadcasted btw.

    That TX was confirmed since you posted …

    Note that Bitcoin is a network of thousands of independent nodes. The network has no consistent clock. Do not rely on either of these two times for any meaningful analysis

    As a “timestamp server”, the Bitcoin clock is the blockchain. It ticks once per block. The order of the blocks is determined by tying each block to its parent with an immutable hash. Actual clock time has only a minimal role
