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 GRB240616.38 (trigger No 740221779,16h 11m 55.20s , +02d 21m 00.0s, R=5.72) errorbox  30621 sec after notice time and 30655 sec after trigger time at 2024-06-16 17:40:30 UT, with upper limit up to  18.3 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 58 deg. The sun  altitude  is -24.5 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 35 deg., longitude l = 15 deg.
