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 230310A ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 33445) errorbox  187 sec after notice time and 218 sec after trigger time at 2023-03-10 00:48:39 UT, with upper limit up to  18.0 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 54 deg. The sun  altitude  is -43.8 deg. 

The galactic latitude b =  9 deg., longitude l =  1 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
