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) started inspect of the Fermi GRB240503.01 (trigger No 736387941,06h 27m 04.08s , +45d 57m 00.0s, R=31.88) errorbox  56538 sec after notice time and 56573 sec after trigger time at 2024-05-03 15:55:10 UT, with upper limit up to  16.9 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 42 deg. The sun  altitude  is -23.9 deg. 

MASTER-SAAO robotic telescope  located in South Africa (South African Astronomical Observatory) started inspect of the Fermi GRB240503.01 errorbox  67241 sec after notice time and 67276 sec after trigger time at 2024-05-03 18:53:32 UT, with upper limit up to  18.3 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 66 deg. The sun  altitude  is -37.4 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 16 deg., longitude l = 169 deg.
