Skynet began observing the field of GRB130408A (Swift trigger 553132, GCN 
14361) in BVRI beginning ~93 minutes after the burst using four of the 
PROMPT telescopes located at CTIO in Chile. A fading source is detected at 
the enhanced position reported by the Swift-XRT team (GCN 14367.)

A preliminary light curve of the first two night's data from PROMPT can be 
found at: http://skynet.unc.edu/grb/grb130408a.png
