GCN Circular 11560

Subject
GRB 110112A: Swift/UVOT upper limits
Date

From

A. A. Breeveld (MSSL/UCL) and M. Stamatikos (OSU/NASA/GSFC) report on 
behalf
of the Swift/UVOT team:

Swift UVOT started observing the field of GRB 110112A  with the white 
filter 85s after the trigger (Stamatikos et al., GCN Circ. 11553).

No optical afterglow consistent with the TNT or XRT positions (Xin et 
al., CGN Circ. 11554 and Evans et al., GCN Circ. 11556) is detected in 
individual or merged UVOT exposures.
Preliminary 3-sigma upper limits using the UVOT photometric system
(Poole et al. 2008, MNRAS, 383, 627) are:

Filter      T_start   T_stop    Exp(s)      Mag (Upper limits)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
white          85         235       147         >20.4

uvw2     4705        6339        393        >19.2
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The quoted upper limits have not been corrected for the expected
Galactic extinction along the line of sight corresponding to a
reddening of E_{B-V} = 0.06 mag (Schlegel et al., 1998, ApJS, 500, 525).
