MASTER-OAFA robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net:, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Argentina (OAFA observatory of San Juan National University) was pointed to the Swift GRB210307.36 (trigger No 1036139,07h 56m 45.60s , -66d 57m 46.8s, R=0.05) errorbox  6 sec after notice time and 54 sec after trigger time at 2021-03-07 08:43:33 UT, with upper limit up to  18.1 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 69 deg. The sun  altitude  is -22.8 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -19 deg., longitude l = 280 deg.
