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 S230617ba errorbox  35322 sec after notice time and 35382 sec after trigger time at 2023-06-18 08:05:31 UT, with upper limit up to  19.1 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 57 deg. The sun  altitude  is -43.1 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -54 deg., longitude l = 19 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
