GRB 061102: Swift/UVOT Magnitude Upper Limits

S. T. Holland (NASA/GSFC & USRA) reports on behalf of the Swift/UVOT
team:

        The Swift/UVOT began observing the field of GRB 061102 at
01:02:02 on 2006-11-02, 92 s after the BAT trigger (Holland et al.,
GCN Circ. 5776).  No optical afterglow was detected in any of the
individual UVOT exposures, or in the coadded exposures, down to the
following 3-sigma limiting magnitudes.  The start and stop times are
relative to the BAT trigger.
