started inspect of GECAM GRB 211105A (Zhao et al. GCN 31046, R.A.Dec(2000)=81.93,-57.38 +-1.27d;
Ttrigger=2021-11-05T 04:35:20.200 UT, Tnotice=2021-11-06 01:59:33UT)
by MASTER-OAFA (Argentina) at 2021-11-06 07:10:26UT (1 day 9306s after trigger time)
with upper limit up to  19.7 mag.

The observations began at zenith distance = 26 deg. The sun  altitude  is -27.4 deg.
The galactic latitude b = -34 deg., longitude l = 266 deg.

Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
