GCN Circular 2978
E. Berger (Carnegie Observatories) and S.R. Kulkarni (Caltech) report on behalf of a larger collaboration: "We imaged the 8-arcsec XRT error circle (GCN 2975) of GRB 050124 (GCN 2972) with NIRC on the Keck I telescope on January 25.504 UT (24.6 hours after the burst). A total of 9 min were obtained in the Ks band. We find two sources within the XRT error circle, which we designate C1 and C2. Object C1 is point-like and is located at (J2000): RA = 12:51:30.7 DEC= 13:02:42 Object C2, 8.4" to the southwest, appears extended. Further observations are planned to check for variability.
