GCN Circular 11449
D. Malesani and A. de Ugarte Postigo (DARK/NBI), report: We notice the presence of an object within the error circle of the X-ray afterglow of GRB 101213 (Sakamoto et al., GCN 11448; see also http://www.swift.ac.uk/sper/). The object is visible in the DSS as well in gri images of the SDSS. It is classified as a galaxy in the SDSS catalog. The coordinates are: RA(J2000) = 16:05:15.20 Dec(J2000) = 21:53:49.2 Magnitudes from the SDSS are (AB): g = 22.07 +- 0.09 r = 21.22 +- 0.07 i = 21.12 +- 0.12 Despite the bad visibility of this GRB right now, the field will be observable from the Northern hemisphere in a couple of weeks. Given the brightness of the potential host galaxy, and hence the likely low redshift, a search for an associated SN may be attempted (also to confirm the object as the GRB host).
