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 Baksan Neutrino Observatory Alert 200512. (trigger No 1639958375,03h 35m 12.00s , -72d 30m 00.0s, R=3) errorbox  1 days 74674 sec after notice time and 1 days 75004 sec after trigger time at 2020-05-13 20:49:39 UT, with upper limit up to  18.9 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 72 deg. The sun  altitude  is -62.8 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -40 deg., longitude l = 288 deg.
