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 Fermi GRB 240112B ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 35521) errorbox  23429 sec after notice time and 23473 sec after trigger time at 2024-01-12 19:30:39 UT, with upper limit up to  19.2 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 47 deg. The sun  altitude  is -18.7 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -51 deg., longitude l = 306 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
