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 Fermi GRB 220309A ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 31717) errorbox  213 sec after notice time and 221 sec after trigger time at 2022-03-09 06:08:25 UT, with upper limit up to  18.5 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 57 deg. The sun  altitude  is -49.3 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = 38 deg., longitude l = 238 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
