GCN Circular 8273
C. Clemens (MPE Garching), A. Rossi (Tautenburg Obs.), J. Greiner, S. McBreen, T. Kruehler, A. Yoldas (all MPE Garching), A. Kupcu Yoldas (ESO) and G. Szokoly (Eoetvoes Univ., Budapest) report on behalf of the GROND team: We observed the field of GRB 080916C for a second time with GROND at 08:04 UT on September 19th, 2008, 3.3 d after the GBM trigger with 54 min of effective exposures. Observations were performed at an average seeing of 1.7" and at an average airmass of 1.7. We do not detect the afterglow candidate first reported by Clemens et al. (GCN #8257) with the following 5-sigma upper limits: z' > 22.7 mag. These measurements strongly indicate a fading of the source compared to our first epoch observations. We therefore propose this is to be the afterglow of GRB 080916C.
