MASTER-SAAO robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in South Africa (South African Astronomical Observatory) started inspect of the LIGO/Virgo S230620au errorbox  18081 sec after notice time and 18166 sec after trigger time at 2023-06-20 17:00:36 UT, with upper limit up to  19.7 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 59 deg. The sun  altitude  is -16.3 deg. 

The galactic latitude b =  2 deg., longitude l = 273 deg.
