GCN Circular 2
GRB971024 #002 We observed the entire 90% confidence RXTE_ASM localization of GRB971024 (Trigger No. 6448, GCN notice of 24 Oct 97 22:41:47 UT) with the USNO, Flagstaff Station 1.0-m telescope in the R band between 14-14.5 hours after the GRB event. The frames were approximately as deep as the DSS in this region. Our frames were blinked against the DSS and no objects substantially brighter on our frames than on the DSS were found. This message is citable in publications. F.J. Vrba, J.A. Munn, U.S. Naval Observatory, Flagstaff Station GCN Administrative PS: This notice is being distributed with a significate time delay (~20 hrs) because of a network problem here at GSFC which prevented me from receiving this notice earlier. This is a very rare occurance. Also, work is progressing on the automated form of these follow-up notices.
