MASTER-SAAO robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in South Africa (South African Astronomical Observatory) started inspect of the Fermi GRB190821.72 (trigger No 588100239, 16h 55m 57.60s , -38d 37m 12.00s, R=7.21) errorbox  10 sec after trigger time at 2019-08-21 17:10:44 UT, with upper limit up to  17.3 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenit distance =  3 deg. The sun  altitude  is -12.4 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -60 deg., longitude l = 98 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
