The Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) has observed the 
JCMT/SCUBA2 source NVSS J040205-042434, proposed as a possible 
counterpart to the IceCube-210922A high-energy neutrino (GCN Circ. 
30862, 30882).
NuSTAR observed the position October 10 (13:55:13 UTC) -�� October 11�� 
(17:20:00 UTC) for a total of 49.2 ksec.

No X-ray source is visible in the field of view. The 3 sigma upper limit 
for the 3-70 keV flux is 1.6x10^-11 ergs/cm^2/s assuming a photon index 
of 2.
