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 240118B ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 35562) errorbox  43321 sec after notice time and 43354 sec after trigger time at 2024-01-19 00:13:40 UT, with upper limit up to  18.5 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 65 deg. The sun  altitude  is -33.7 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -51 deg., longitude l = 269 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
