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 GRB230330.65 (trigger No 701883729,23h 36m 48.00s , -71d 23m 24.0s, R=7.86) errorbox  6587 sec after notice time and 6594 sec after trigger time at 2023-03-30 17:31:58 UT, with upper limit up to  18.1 mag. Observations started at twilight.  The observations began at zenith distance = 70 deg. The sun  altitude  is -12.3 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -45 deg., longitude l = 311 deg.
