Report:

The wide field camera of the telescope FRAM located at Pierre
Auger observatory in Malargue, Argentina, observed the field
of Swift trigger 177666 (Cmpana et al., GCN 4533) starting
123s after the GRB (10s after GCN). We detect an optical
source at coordinates:

21:51:36.1 -59:58:58 (J2000)

The object faded during few exposures from the reach of the
telescope.

Note that this object is within few arcseconds from the galaxy
LEDA 128172.
