We see GRB190919B (INTEGRAL trigger 8377; Mereghetti et al. GCN 25788) at 
prompt and afterglow stage with flare (after 7 min)  on several MASTER 
telescopes (Lipunov et al., GCN 25787) at GROND position (Bolmer et al, 25789).

Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:

The OT coordinates are:

  RA, Dec = 20h 47m 30.56s , -44d 41m 42s.5
Error = 0.3 arcsec

The observation and reduction will be continued.
