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 S230618k errorbox  155 sec after notice time and 201 sec after trigger time at 2023-06-18 05:01:08 UT, with upper limit up to  17.7 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 80 deg. The sun  altitude  is -80.5 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 66 deg., longitude l = 151 deg.
