GCN Circular 28400

Subject
GRB 200907B: Swift/UVOT Upper Limits

From
Mike Siegel at PSU/Swift MOC <mhs18@psu.edu>
M. H. Siegel (PSU) and A. P. Beardmore (U. Leicester)
report on behalf of the Swift/UVOT team:

The Swift/UVOT began settled observations of the field of GRB 200907B
84 s after the BAT trigger (Beardmore et al., GCN Circ. 28384).
No optical afterglow consistent with the XRT position
(Evans GCN Circ. 28385) 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) = 0.61 in the direction of the burst
(Schlegel et al. 1998).
