(Clemson University) report:

We used the Kitt Peak 2.1m telescope and the FLAMINGOS instrument in NIR

7473, Grupe et al.). In 80 minutes of stacked exposures, we marginally

afterglow (GCN 7488, Tanvir et al.) at J ~ 20 (using a 2MASS comparison

stacked exposures was ~3 hours after the trigger.  Further analysis is
