G.M.Beskin (SAO), V.L.Plokhotnichenko (SAO), A.S.Pozanenko  (IKI).

We have observed the GRB021004 afterglow (GCN 1564) with SAO RAN
1-m Zeiss telescope and UBVRcIc photometer with Electron K-585
CCD.  Observations cover time interval from 7 to 12 hours after
the burst. Exposure time of each frame is 10 minutes, the field
is 3'x4'. Results of the photometry are in the table below. Standards
are taken relative to A.Henden and U.Munari, AsApSuppl. v.143,
343 (1999) standard near V407 Cyg.
