GCN Circular 15036

Subject
GRB 130725A: Swift/UVOT Upper Limits
Date

From

S. R. Oates (UCL-MSSL) and B.-B. Zhang (PUS/UAH)
report on behalf of the Swift/UVOT team:

The Swift/UVOT began settled observations of the field of GRB 130725A 
(Zhang et al., GCN Circ. 15028) 3097 s after the BAT trigger (trigger=563980).
No optical afterglow consistent with the XRT position is 
detected in the initial UVOT exposures.

Preliminary 3-sigma upper limits using the UVOT photometric system
(Breeveld et al. 2011, AIP Conf. Proc. 1358, 373) 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) = 0.06 in the direction of the burst
(Schlegel et al. 1998).
