GCN Circular 8053
Adria C. Updike (Clemson U), James Neff (College of Charleston), and Dieter H. Hartmann (Clemson U) report: We observed the field of GRB 080802 (GCN 8051, Baumgartner et al.) using the 0.5m UVI (University of the Virgin Islands) telescope at St. Thomas for 5 minutes in the R band, beginning 00:12 UT (~9 hours after the trigger). We detect no new sources within the XRT error circle to a limiting magnitude of R ~ 18.5 as calibrated against the USNO B1.0 catalog. Further observations we hampered by cloud cover.
