GCN Circular 13495
D. Xu (WIS) reports on behalf of a larger collaboration: The Swift satellite observed the field of the decaying optical transient (Cenko et al. GCN 13489; Xu et al. GCN 13490; Schady et al. GCN 13492), which is very likely the optical afterglow of GRB 120716A (Hurley et al., GCN 13487). Initial observation started at 12:47 UT and ended at 13:12 UT on 2012-07-19 (i.e., a median time of 2.83 d after the IPN trigger), and consisted of a total observing time of 1470s for Swift/XRT. Preliminary XRT data reduction reveals a S/N~2 source at coordinates RA(J2000) = 20:52:12.4 Dec(J2000) = +09:35:51.1 with an uncertainty of 7.7 arcsec radius, being consistent with the position of the optical source. Currently we don't know whether the X-ray source is decaying or not. We thank the Swift team for carrying out a quick ToO observation.
