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 240616A ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 36674) errorbox  39447 sec after notice time and 39481 sec after trigger time at 2024-06-16 16:34:44 UT, with upper limit up to  18.5 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 51 deg. The sun  altitude  is -11.2 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 51 deg., longitude l = 213 deg.
