GCN Circular 8135
Christina C. Thoene (DARK/NBI), Antonio de Ugarte Postigo (ESO) and Davide Ricci (Univ. of Liege) report: We observed the complete 3' error box of the SuperAGILE GRB 080825B (Evangelista et al., GCN 8133) using the Danish 1.54m + DFOSC at La Silla (Chile) starting Aug. 25 at 23:18:31 UT (5.53 hours after the burst). In the first I-band frame we detect a new source not present in the DSS-2 catalogue at the following coordinates (J2000.0 +/- 0.7"): RA: 13:56:48.22 DEC: -68:57:18.5 for which we measure an I-band magnitude of 17.4 +/- 0.2 as compared to several USNO-B1 stars. A finding chart can be found at: http://www.sc.eso.org/~adeugart/GRB/080825/080825.jpg Further observations and analysis are ongoing to establish the connection to the GRB and the fading of the object.
