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 S230618y errorbox  48813 sec after notice time and 48871 sec after trigger time at 2023-06-19 00:00:21 UT, with upper limit up to  14.4 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 71 deg. The sun  altitude  is -29.2 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 28 deg., longitude l = 268 deg.
