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
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.
