Subject

Astronomical Center, in Abu Dhabi, UAE. 

 

We observed the short GRB 221120A detected by Swift (R. Eyles-Ferris et al.,
GCN 32955), with our 0.35m telescope. The observation was done on 21
November 2022 from 15:36:06 to 15:48:28 (UT), 18.2 hours after the Swift
trigger. We obtained multiple 180-sec exposures in Ic filter. We did not
detect any afterglow within XRT localization (M.R. Goad et al., GCN 32962).

 

The following upper limit was calculated using Atlas catalogue as a
reference:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-

JD (mid), T_mid-T0(hrs), Exposure (sec), Filter, Lim_mag

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-

2459905.155422, 18.2, 5 x 180 (stacked), Ic, > 19.5

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
