MASTER-SAAO robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net: http://observ.pereplet.ru, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in South Africa (South African Astronomical Observatory) started inspect of the Fermi GRB 210202A ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 29380) errorbox  10111 sec after notice time and 10140 sec after trigger time at 2021-02-02 22:59:31 UT, with upper limit up to  18.0 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 71 deg. The sun  altitude  is -41.4 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 13 deg., longitude l = 333 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
