GRB 210725A: Swift/UVOT Upper Limits
2021-07-27T00:40:13Z (3 years ago)

M. H. Siegel (PSU) and M. G. Bernardini (INAF-OAB)
report on behalf of the Swift/UVOT team:

The Swift/UVOT began settled observations of the field of GRB 210725A
114 s after the BAT trigger (Bernardini et al., GCN Circ. 30501).
No optical afterglow consistent with the XRT position (Perri et al. GCN Circ. 30517)
is detected in the initial UVOT exposures. Preliminary 3-sigma upper limits using the
UVOT photometric system (Breeveld et al. 2011, AIP Conf. Proc. 1358, 373) for the first
finding chart (FC) exposure and subsequent exposures are:

The magnitudes in the table are not corrected for the Galactic extinction
due to the reddening of E(B-V) = 0.047 in the direction of the burst
(Schlegel et al. 1998).
