GCN Circular 12488

Subject
GRB 111022B: Swift/UVOT upper limits
Date

From

N. P. M. Kuin (MSSL-UCL) and S. T. Holland (CRESST/USRA/GSFC)
report on behalf of the Swift/UVOT team:

The Swift/UVOT began settled observations of the field of GRB 111022B
145 s after the BAT trigger (Holland et al., GCN Circ. 12472).
The upper limit of detection was determined at the enhanced XRT position
(Beardmore et al., GCN 12478).

Preliminary 3-sigma upper limits in the UVOT photometric system (
Poole et al. 2008, MNRAS, 383, 627) for the first finding
chart (FC) exposure and subsequent exposures are:

The magnitudes in the table are not corrected for the Galactic extinction
due to the reddening of E(B-V) = 0.07 in the direction of the burst
(Schlegel et al. 1998).
