report on behalf of the REM team:
We observed the field of the GRB 070508 (Grupe et al. GCN 6383) with
the robotic 60-cm REM telescope located at La Silla (Chile). A
set of observations was performed automatically in the optical and
near infrared filters (V, R, I and J, H, K, z).
Preliminary analysis of the first frames at 4:34:11 UT (~16 min after
the burst, ~2 min after the BAT trigger) shows a marginal detection
of the UVOT afterglow at H~15.2.
Further observations are in progress.
