GRB 191004A: Swift/UVOT Detection

S. J. LaPorte (PSU) and S. B. Cenko (GSFC)
report on behalf of the Swift/UVOT team:

The Swift/UVOT began settled observations of the field of GRB 191004A
84 s after the BAT trigger (Cenko et al., GCN Circ. 25945).
A fading source consistent with the XRT position
(Osborne et al. GCN Circ. 25950)
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) = 0.01 in the direction of the burst
(Schlegel et al. 1998).
