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 IceCube Alert 210608.15 (trigger No 69917294,22h 28m 04.32s , +18d 38m 49.2s, R=1.31) errorbox  6843 sec after notice time and 6874 sec after trigger time at 2021-06-08 05:35:35 UT, with upper limit up to  18.0 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 78 deg. The sun  altitude  is -74.0 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -33 deg., longitude l = 83 deg.
