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) was pointed to the Swift GRB240516.15 (trigger No 1228797,14h 11m 04.80s , -63d 30m 18.0s, R=0.05) errorbox  18 sec after notice time and 45 sec after trigger time at 2024-05-16 03:37:13 UT, with upper limit up to  17.3 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 65 deg. The sun  altitude  is -21.9 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -2 deg., longitude l = 312 deg.
