GRB051001: Swift UVOT Upper Limits

F. Marshall(GSFC), A. Moretti (OAB), J. Nousek (PSU), W. Voges (MPE),
N. Gehrels (GSFC) report on behalf of the Swift/UVOT team.

The Swift/UVOT instrument began observing the field of the burst GRB051001
at 11:14:45 UT, 189 seconds after the BAT trigger (Moretti et al., GCN 4051).

Within the 6 arcsec radius XRT error circle (GCN 4051), no new optical/UV
source is detected. We derive the following 3-sigma upper limit magnitudes
on any optical/UV counterpart in the summed images in each UVOT filter
(from 6" radius apertures centered on the XRT location, which is
representative of the local background).
