MASTER-SAAO robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in South Africa (South African Astronomical Observatory) started inspect of the LIGO/Virgo S190707q errorbox  25837 sec after trigger time at 2019-07-07 16:44:03 UT, with upper limit up to  17.5 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenit distance = 144 deg. The sun  altitude  is -11.8 deg. 

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


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
