We observed  ZTF21aayokph (AT2021lfa) (Yao, Perley, and Ho, GCN Circ. 29938)
with the Reionization and Transients Infrared Camera (RATIR) on the 1.5m Harold
Johnson Telescope at the Observatorio Astron��mico Nacional on Sierra San Pedro
M��rtir from 2021/05 5.15 to 2021/05 5.18 UTC, obtaining a total of 0.21 hours
exposure in the g, r, Z, Y, J, and H bands and 0.39 hours exposure in the i
band.

We detect the source reported by Yao, Perley, & Ho (GCN Circ. 29938)  In
comparison with the SDSS DR9 and 2MASS catalogs, we obtain:

  g	= 20.85 +/- 0.07
  r	= 20.48 +/- 0.06
  i	= 20.06 +/- 0.03
  Z	= 19.97 +/- 0.07
  Y	= 20.28 +/- 0.16
  J	= 20.16 +/- 0.20
  H	= 18.39 +/- 0.31

These magnitudes are in the AB system and are not corrected for Galactic
extinction in the direction of the source.

Observations are continuing.

We thank the staff of the Observatorio Astron��mico Nacional in San Pedro
M��rtir.
