On March 29.84-29.86 UT, the SAX-WFC error box of GRB980329 (IAUC 6853)
was imaged at the Gornergrat Infrared Telescope (TIRGO) with ARNICA + J
band filter.  A preliminary analysis of the data shows that the galaxy
reported by Djorgovski et al. (GCNC #41) is detected at 2-sigma
significance with a magnitude J = 19.2 (+0.8,-0.5 at 1 sigma).
