MASTER-OAFA robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Argentina (OAFA observatory of San Juan National University) was pointed to the IceCube Alert 201209.43 (trigger No 8912764,00h 25m 36.24s , -10d 01m 04.8s, R=0.59) errorbox  39512 sec after notice time and 52475 sec after trigger time at 2020-12-10 00:50:19 UT, with upper limit up to  18.8 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 25 deg. The sun  altitude  is -15.1 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -72 deg., longitude l = 104 deg.
