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 MAXI GRB210320.89 (trigger No 293849998,00h 18m 55.44s , -47d 28m 33.6s, R=1) errorbox  61827 sec after notice time and 73184 sec after trigger time at 2021-03-21 17:40:45 UT, with upper limit up to  17.2 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 73 deg. The sun  altitude  is -11.8 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -69 deg., longitude l = 317 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
