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 210204B ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 29394) errorbox  19603 sec after notice time and 19610 sec after trigger time at 2021-02-05 00:05:50 UT, with upper limit up to  18.1 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 75 deg. The sun  altitude  is -38.9 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -17 deg., longitude l = 339 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
