We observed the field of GRB 060210 (swift trigger = 180977) using the 1-m 
reflector at ARIES, Nainital. The afterglow candidate reported by Fox and 
Cenko (#GCN 4723) is seen in our R band frame of 900 sec exposure, ~8.8 
hrs after the burst, at a magnitude of 20.5 +/- 0.2 in comparison to four 
nearby USNO-B1.0 stars.
