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 GRB 240624A ( N. J. Klingler et al., GCN 36743) errorbox  39782 sec after notice time and 39803 sec after trigger time at 2024-06-24 17:04:33 UT, with upper limit up to  15.4 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 84 deg. The sun  altitude  is -16.8 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -3 deg., longitude l = 219 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
