GCN Circular 3398
Autumn Homewood, Dieter H. Hartmann (Clemson), Matt Wood (FIT) Report on behalf of the Follow-Up-Network (FUN) GRB collaboration: We observed a 8x12 arcminute field centered on the optical afterglow (GCN 3366) of GRB 050505 discovered by Swift (GCN 3360) with the SARA 0.9 m Telescope at KPNO. Observations were carried out under good seeing conditions with the U55 CCD. We obtained 35 minutes of exposure in R. Observations started at UT 05/05/06 03:03:37, and ended 03:43:43. We do not detect the afterglow. Our R-band upper limit (1-sigma) is R(lim) = 19.7. The calibration was carried out using the USNO A2.0 catalog.
