Subject
GRB050922C - Swift UVOT preliminary analysis
Date

From
Caryl Gronwall at PSU/Swift-UVOT <caryl@astro.psu.edu>
S. D. Hunsberger (PSU), F. Marshall (GSFC), S. T. Holland (GSFC),
P. Brown (PSU), A. Morgan (PSU), P. Roming (PSU), and
A. Cucchiara (PSU) on behalf of the Swift/UVOT teams

The UVOT began observing GRB050922C at 19:57:41UT, 111 seconds
after the BAT trigger (Norris et al., GCN 4013). A fading
optical counterpart is detected at 21:09:33.0 -08:45:30.1. The
afterglow is apparent in the UBV filters and there is a marginal
detection in UVW1 which is likely due to the redward edge of the
filter response overlapping the U bandpass. The UVOT magnitudes
listed below are not corrected for extinction. Tmid is the time
since trigger of the midpoint of the exposure(s).
