GCN Circular 14362
A. Melandri (INAF-OAB), J. Japelj (U. Ljubljana), F.J. Virgili(LJMU), C.G. Mundell (LJMU) report: The 2-m Liverpool Telescope robotically followed up GRB130408A (Swift trigger 553132, Lien et al., GCN 14361) 19.42 min after the GRB trigger time observing with SLOAN-gri filters. The automatic LT-TRAP procedure detected an uncatalogued fading source candidate at: RA=08:57:37.30 Dec=-32:21:38.90 (J2000) with magnitude R~16.5 mag (vs USNOB1) ~20 min after the burst trigger. The object is clearly fading in all filters and we suggest this is the optical afterglow of GRB130408A. Observations and analysis are ongoing.
