MASTER-Amur robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Russia (Blagoveshchensk State Pedagogical University) was pointed to the Integral GRB240502.23 (trigger No 10671,07h 34m 35.27s , +16d 45m 27.8s, R=0.0545) errorbox  23897 sec after notice time and 23928 sec after trigger time at 2024-05-02 12:07:33 UT, with upper limit up to  17.3 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 56 deg. The sun  altitude  is -11.1 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 17 deg., longitude l = 203 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
