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 230316A ( Fermi GBM team, GCN 33481) errorbox  29242 sec after notice time and 29277 sec after trigger time at 2023-03-16 21:14:27 UT, with upper limit up to  18.3 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 71 deg. The sun  altitude  is -49.7 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -21 deg., longitude l = 330 deg.


Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:
