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 220403A ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 31818) errorbox  25928 sec after notice time and 25957 sec after trigger time at 2022-04-03 17:22:40 UT, with upper limit up to  19.0 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 40 deg. The sun  altitude  is -11.4 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -51 deg., longitude l = 251 deg.
