MASTER-OAFA robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Argentina (OAFA observatory of San Juan National University) started inspect of the LIGO/Virgo S230602ap errorbox  46171 sec after notice time and 46590 sec after trigger time at 2023-06-03 07:36:46 UT, with upper limit up to  16.3 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 80 deg. The sun  altitude  is -48.2 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -1 deg., longitude l = 120 deg.
