(NASA/GSFC/UMCP) report on behalf of the Swift team:
The Swift/UVOT performed targeted observations of the transient PS17yt
(Chambers et al., LVC Circ. 20512), within the error area of the LIGO
event G270580, between 17:25:31 and 19:27:09 on 24th January 2017 in the
UVW2 filter. The preliminary combined magnitude using the UVOT
photometric system (Breeveld et al. 2011, AIP Conf. Proc. 1358, 373) for
the exposures is 20.9 �� 0.2 mag.
