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) was pointed to the Swift GRB190821.72 (trigger No 921722, 16h 40m 18.48s , -34d  1m 19.20s, R=0.05) errorbox  8 sec after notice time and 41 sec after trigger time at 2019-08-21 17:10:44 UT, with upper limit up to  18.4 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenit distance =  3 deg. The sun  altitude  is -12.4 deg. 

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