Astronomical Center (IAC), in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

We���ve just observed the optical afterglow of the extremely bright GRB Swift
J1913.1+1946 (Dichiara et al., GCN Circ. 32632) using 0.36m f/7.7 Schmidt
Cassegrain telescope on 10 October 2022 as the night started. Two sets of
three stacked frames were analyzed, each frame is 180 seconds of exposure
using I�� filter. The magnitude was 17.8!

The below GIF video shows how the object faded today, where the first
frames in this video were taken yesterday when the magnitude was 15.5, and
the frames at the end of the video show how it becomes fainter now at
magnitude 17.8.
