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) was pointed to the Swift GRB 210820A ( A. P. Beardmore et al., GCN 30664) errorbox  4451 sec after notice time and 4532 sec after trigger time at 2021-08-20 18:53:33 UT, with upper limit up to  15.2 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 84 deg. The sun  altitude  is -26.1 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -57 deg., longitude l = 138 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
