MASTER-Tavrida robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Russia (Lomonosov MSU, SAI Crimea astronomical station) was pointed to the Swift GRB 201020A ( E. Ambrosi et al., GCN 28696) errorbox  35426 sec after notice time and 35521 sec after trigger time at 2020-10-20 15:39:27 UT, with upper limit up to  17.6 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 32 deg. The sun  altitude  is -9.4 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 31 deg., longitude l = 55 deg.
