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 240216A ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 35736) errorbox  26194 sec after notice time and 26232 sec after trigger time at 2024-02-16 18:14:15 UT, with upper limit up to  17.9 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 50 deg. The sun  altitude  is -10.0 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -39 deg., longitude l = 293 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
