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 240502A ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 36368) errorbox  46958 sec after notice time and 46965 sec after trigger time at 2024-05-02 18:31:27 UT, with upper limit up to  18.7 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 62 deg. The sun  altitude  is -32.6 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 29 deg., longitude l = 203 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
