GCN Circular 1270
D.W. Fox, P.A. Price (Caltech) and J. Darling (Cornell) report on behalf of the REACT GRB Collaboration: We have observed the afterglow candidate of GRB 020305 (GCN #1267) with the Palomar 200-inch telescope + COSMIC re-imager at 2002 Mar 13.8 UT. Our exposures consisted of 3x600 sec images in Gunn-i. The afterglow candidate is well detected in the combined image, with an estimated magnitude of R ~ 22.1 mag. Since this value is little different from our upper limit from Mar 9, this source may be the quiescent component (host galaxy?). Due to the large error box, we cannot as yet rule out the possibility that this object is unrelated to the GRB. Further observations are planned. This message may be cited.
