report on behalf of the MAXI team:

We examined MAXI/GSC all-sky X-ray images (2-20 keV)
after the LVC trigger S200105ae at 2020-01-05 16:24:26.057 UTC (GCN 26640).

At the trigger time of S200105ae, the high-voltage of MAXI/GSC was off,
and it was turned on at T0+93 sec (+1.6 min).
The first one-orbit (92 min) scan observation with GSC after the event covered 82%
of the 90% credible region of the bayestar skymap from 16:25:59 to 17:32:25 UTC (T0+93 to T0+4079 sec).

No significant new source was found in the region in the one-orbit scan observation.
A typical 1-sigma averaged upper limit obtained in one scan observation
is 20 mCrab at 2-20 keV.

If you require information about X-ray flux by MAXI/GSC at specific coordinates,
please contact the submitter of this circular by email.
