GCN Circular 17226

Subject
Swift XRT and UVOT observations of GRB141222A

M. De Pasquale (IASF/INAF Palermo) and M. Siegel (PSU) report on behalf of the Swift-XRT team:

We have analysed 4.7 ks of XRT data for GRB 141222A, detected by the Fermi/LAT
(McEnery et al. GCN 17218), Fermi/GBM (Jenke et al., GCN 17220) and IPN (Svinkin et al.
GCN 17223), from 42.0 ks to 53.4 ks after the Fermi/LAT trigger. The data are entirely
in Photon Counting (PC) mode. No source is detected within the LAT error circle; we
determined a 3 sigma upper limit of 2.3e-3 count/s at the LAT coordinates.

The results of the XRT-team automatic analysis are available at
http://www.swift.ac.uk/xrt_products/00020454.

The Swift/UVOT began settled observations of the field of GRB 141222
41986 s after the LAT trigger. �No optical afterglow is detected in the initial UVOT
exposures within the LAT error circle. �Preliminary 3-sigma upper limits using the
UVOT photometric system (Breeveld et al. 2011, AIP Conf. Proc. 1358, 373) for the
initial exposures are:

The magnitudes in the table are not corrected for the Galactic extinction
due to the reddening of E(B-V) = 0.42 in the direction of the burst
(Schlegel et al. 1998).
