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 GRB 240612A ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 36662) errorbox  8847 sec after notice time and 8878 sec after trigger time at 2024-06-12 14:32:27 UT, with upper limit up to  17.8 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 70 deg. The sun  altitude  is -15.7 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -27 deg., longitude l = 55 deg.
