GCN Circular 4774
M. Jel�nek. S. Guziy (IAA-CSIC Granada), K. Viironen (IAC La Laguna), L. Sabin (ING of Telescopes, La Palma) and J. A. Caballero (IAC and ING), on behalf of larger collaboration, report: "We have performed a second epoch observation of the field including the optical afterglow candidate (cf. Guziy et al. GCN 4771) to GRB 060213. On the stacked 5 x 180s frame taken on Feb 17.95 UT, we cannot confirm a decline in brightness and conclude that the aforementioned object is probably a normal star with R = 21.6 +/- 0.1. We note however, that the only other object that lies within the Swift/XRT error box (Morris et al. GCNC 4770) down to R = 23.0 limiting magnitude, is at coordinates (J2000) RA = 09h26m24.27s, Dec= -09o06'54".7 (i.e. 5" from the XRT center) and appears to be a relatively bright galaxy (R = 20.0 +/- 0.1 within our 1" aperture) catalogued in GSC2 as S12101311196. If this galaxy is unrelated to GRB 060213, spectroscopic observations will be needed to discern whether this is an active galaxy originating the X-ray emission detected by SWIFT."
