Date

From
Mike Siegel at PSU/Swift MOC <siegel@swift.psu.edu>
M. H. Siegel, M. M. Chester (PSU), A. Amaral-Rogers (U Leicester)
and D. Malesani (DARK/NBI) report on behalf of the Swift/UVOT team:

The Swift/UVOT began settled observations of the field of GRB 150212A
1812 s after the BAT trigger (Page et al. GCN Circ. 17449; Chester et al.
GCN Circ. 17455).  A cataloged optical source is detected
within the XRT error circle (Evans GCN Circ. 17452).  The measured
magnitudes are consistent with the cataloged values and no fading is
evident.
