MASTER-IAC robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Spain (IAC Teide Observatory) started inspect of the LIGO/Virgo S190706ai errorbox  1152 sec after trigger time at 2019-07-06 22:45:53 UT, with upper limit up to  18.7 mag. The observations began at zenit distance = 107 deg. The sun  altitude  is -28.9 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -60 deg., longitude l = 98 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
