UVOT started observing GRB050911 16408 s (4.56 hours) after the
burst (Page et al. GCN 3961). The delay was caused by firstly
an earth limb constraint and then Swift spacecraft loss of lock
on the star tracker. No new source was found within the XRT error
circle (Page et al. GCN 3967) to the following upper limits.
