MASTER-Tavrida robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Russia (Lomonosov MSU, SAI Crimea astronomical station) started inspect of the MAXI GRB210102.38 (trigger No 216347865,23h 33m 17.52s , -21d 05m 09.6s, R=1) errorbox  20657 sec after notice time and 22218 sec after trigger time at 2021-01-02 15:14:28 UT, with upper limit up to  18.6 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 66 deg. The sun  altitude  is -10.2 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -72 deg., longitude l = 49 deg.
