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 240502B ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 36372) errorbox  36140 sec after notice time and 36171 sec after trigger time at 2024-05-03 00:26:33 UT, with upper limit up to  17.3 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 78 deg. The sun  altitude  is -60.0 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -8 deg., longitude l = 71 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
