GCN Circular 22627

Subject
GRB 180410A: Swift/UVOT Upper Limits
Date

From
Frank Marshall at Swift/UVOT <marshall@milkyway.gsfc.nasa.gov>
F. E. Marshall (NASA/GSFC) and J. D. Gropp (PSU)
report on behalf of the Swift/UVOT team:

The Swift/UVOT began settled observations of the field of GRB 180410A
179 s after the BAT trigger (Gropp et al., GCN Circ. 22620).
No optical afterglow consistent with the enhanced XRT position
(Evans et al. GCN Circ. 22622)
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) = 0.92 in the direction of the burst
(Schlegel et al. 1998).
