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 240504A ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 36387) errorbox  42875 sec after notice time and 42910 sec after trigger time at 2024-05-04 17:08:02 UT, with upper limit up to  17.4 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 74 deg. The sun  altitude  is -15.3 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -35 deg., longitude l = 200 deg.
