GCN Circular 14244
L. P. Singer (Caltech), S. B. Cenko (UC Berkeley), and D. A. Brown (Syracuse) report on behalf of a larger collaboration: We have imaged the 3-sigma Swift BAT error circle (S. Barthelmy, GCN 14214) of GRB130215A (Swift548760, S. Barthelmy, GCN 14204) with the Palomar 48 inch Oschin telescope (P48) as part of the Palomar Transient Factory (PTF). Images were obtained in the Mould R filter on 2013-02-15 at 02:35:05 and 04:05:52 UTC, 1.1 and 2.6 hours after the trigger. We detect a fading point source that is absent in the USNO B-1 catalog at magnitudes of 16.38 and 17.59 at RA(J2000) = 2h 54m 00.73s DEC(J2000) = +13d 23' 43.0" , matching the ROTSE-IIIb position (GCN 14205, Zheng & Flewelling). Assuming a power-law decay, these two P48 observations give us an index alpha=-1.25, consistent with the index of alpha=-1.24 reported by ROTSE analysis (GCN 14208, Zheng et al.).
