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 GRB220421.35 (trigger No 672221879,04h 57m 40.80s , +23d 08m 24.0s, R=2.09) errorbox  16459 sec after notice time and 32297 sec after trigger time at 2022-04-21 17:16:12 UT, with upper limit up to  15.4 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 77 deg. The sun  altitude  is -14.4 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -12 deg., longitude l = 179 deg.
