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 210324C ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 29718) errorbox  2759 sec after notice time and 2786 sec after trigger time at 2021-03-24 20:46:24 UT, with upper limit up to  17.1 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 81 deg. The sun  altitude  is -48.8 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -63 deg., longitude l = 263 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
