GCN Circular 12805
D. Grupe (PSU) and M. Siegel (PSU) report on behalf of the Swift team: Swift re-observed the field of the IPN burst GRB 111222A (Hurley et al., GCN circ. 12714) on 2011-12-31 for 5 ks. We do not detect the X-ray source reported by Grupe (GCN circ. 12716) in a 2.5 ks observation 27 hours after the burst anymore. The 3-sigma upper limit at the position of the afterglow is 2.2e-3 counts/s in the Swift XRT. We conclude that the X-ray source has faded and is the afterglow of GRB 111222A. Swift/UVOT observed the burst for 4.9 ks, with all data taken in the white filter. We confirm the previously reported optical source noted in Siegel and Grupe (GCN Circ. 12717) that was also present in the DSS images. We find that the source has faded significantly since the initial observation from a white magnitude of 19.34+-0.03 to 19.89+-0.03. This implies that the previous observation recorded light from both the host galaxy and the optical afterglow of the burst. Further observations of the host galaxy are strongly encouraged. The results of the XRT-team automatic analysis are available at http://www.swift.ac.uk/xrt_products/00020194. This circular is an official product of the Swift team.
