MASTER-Amur robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Russia (Blagoveshchensk State Pedagogical University) started inspect of the LIGO/Virgo S230522n errorbox  1687 sec after notice time and 1743 sec after trigger time at 2023-05-22 15:59:36 UT, with upper limit up to  14.3 mag. The observations began at zenith distance =  5 deg. The sun  altitude  is -19.3 deg. 

MASTER-OAFA robotic telescope  located in Argentina (OAFA observatory of San Juan National University) started inspect of the LIGO/Virgo S230522n errorbox  32656 sec after notice time and 32712 sec after trigger time at 2023-05-23 00:35:45 UT, with upper limit up to  12.9 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 51 deg. The sun  altitude  is -36.5 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 32 deg., longitude l = 313 deg.
