The 60cm BOOTES-3/YA robotic telescope at NIWA Lauder in Otago (New
Zealand) responded to the Swift ground-detected burst GRB 190331B (Page
et al. GCNC 24041) ~2.36 day after the burst. The first images (clear
filter) were obtained starting on April 2, 12:39 UT. At the uncatalogued
X-ray source position found by Swift/XRT, no optical afterglow is
detected down to 20.3 mag on a 900s co-added image, in agreement with
the non-detection by Swift/UVOT.
We thank the staff at NIWA for its excellent support.
