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) started inspect of the Fermi GRB210228.06 (trigger No 636168178,18h 53m 55.20s , -43d 07m 48.0s, R=2.29) errorbox  15502 sec after notice time and 29006 sec after trigger time at 2021-02-28 09:26:20 UT, with upper limit up to  17.1 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 43 deg. The sun  altitude  is -12.9 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -19 deg., longitude l = 354 deg.
