behalf of the REM

The robotic 60-cm REM telescope located at La Silla (Chile) observed  
automatically the field of the GRB 080319B  on March 19 06:13:32 UT  
(about 43 seconds after the burst).

We clearly detect the afterglow reported in GCN 7427, 7428, 7430  
(Racusin et
al.; Holland et al.; Li et al.).

The object was still at H~12.5 at about 22 min from the burst time.

Further analyses and observations are in progress.
