GCN Circular 11499

Subject
GRB 101225A: Swift/UVOT Detection

M. H. Siegel (PSU) and J. L. Racusin (NASA/GSFC)
report on behalf of the Swift/UVOT team:

The Swift/UVOT began settled observations of the field of GRB 101225A
1387 s after the BAT trigger (Racusion et al., GCN Circ. 11493).  We  
find
a marginal detection in the later data consistent with the enhanced
XRT position (Evans et al., GCN Circ. 11497).  Preliminary 3-sigma upper
limits and magnitudes using the UVOT photometric system
(Poole et al. 2008, MNRAS, 383, 627) for the  exposures are:

due to the reddening of E(B-V) = 0.10 in the direction of the burst
(Schlegel et al. 1998).
