Siding Spring Observatory. The observation started at about 14.7 hours after

the initial alert, and used g, r, i, z filters with 540 sec of exposure in
each filter.

Preliminary photometry is following based on nearby Pan-STARRS stars.

Filter    Date    UT-Start    Mag

g    2019-01-15    10:41:00    20.2 +/- 0.3

r    2019-01-15    10:50:57    19.7 +/- 0.3
