MASTER-Kislovodsk robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Russia (Lomonosov MSU, Kislovodsk Solar Station of Pulkovo observatory) started inspect of the LIGO/Virgo S191205ah errorbox  60 sec after notice time and 312 sec after trigger time at 2019-12-05 21:57:20 UT, with upper limit up to  19.3 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 88 deg. The sun  altitude  is -66.3 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -52 deg., longitude l = 89 deg.
