GCN Circular 10901

Subject
GRB 100628A: Swift/UVOT Upper Limits

S. Immler (CRESST/GSFC/UMD) reports on behalf of the Swift/UVOT team:

The Swift/UVOT began settled observations of the field of GRB 100628A
90 s after the BAT trigger (Immler et al., GCN Circ. 10895). No optical
afterglow consistent with the XRT position (Starling et al., GCN Circ.
10899) is detected in the initial UVOT exposures. Preliminary 3-sigma
upper limits using the UVOT photometric system (Poole et al. 2008,
MNRAS, 383, 627) for the first finding chart (FC) exposure and subsequent
exposures are:

due to the reddening of E(B-V) = 0.17 in the direction of the burst
(Schlegel et al. 1998).
