 We observed the afterglow of GRB 190202A (Lien et al., GCN 23830;
Novichonok et al., GCN 23831; Evans et al., GCN 23832; Steeghs et al., GCN
23833; Kuin et al., GCN 23834; Verrecchia et al., GCN 23835; Markwardt et
al., GCN 23836; Veres et al., GCN 23838; Cucchiara et al., GCN 23839; Lien
et al., GCN 23840) with the 0.8-m telescope at the McDonald observatory.
The observation started at 2019-02-02 08:02 UT or about 6.3 hours after the
initial alert.

 The afterglow is detected in R bands, and preliminary magnitudes are
derived, using nearby Pan-STARRS stars as photometry references.
