The 2-m Faulkes Telescope North began observing Swift GRB150120B
(D'Elia et al. GCN 17314) on Jan 20 at 07:39:45 UT
(~18 minutes after the burst trigger) with SDSS r and i filters.
We clearly detect the optical candidate reported by Perley (GCN
17315), with a magnitude of r=19.21 +- 0.07 calibrated against
nearby USNOB-1 (R1) stars.
