MASTER II  robotic telescope (MASTER-Net: 
located in SAAO was pointed to the  GRB150627.18 10133 sec after notice 
time and 55479 sec after trigger time at 2015-06-27 19:48:02

first (180s exposure)  set we  found optical transient within LAT 
error-box (ra=07 49 57 dec=-51 33 34 r=0.500000, Arimoto et al., GCN 
17791) brighter then 16.87.
