Subject
GRB 070411: Swift/UVOT observations
Date

From
Samantha Oates at MSSL <sro@mssl.ucl.ac.uk>
S.R.Oates (UCL-MSSL) and A. Moretti (INAF-OAB) report on behalf of the
Swift/UVOT team:

The Swift/UVOT began observing the field of GRB 070411 on 2007-04-11 at 
20:16:37 UT, 243s after the BAT trigger (Moretti et al., GCN 6267). A weak 
afterglow is detected in the WHITE, V and B filters at a refined position:

RA(J2000)  =  07:09:19.903
Dec(J2000) = +01:03:52.95

The magnitudes and 3 sigma upper limits are provided in the table below.
The numbers in square brackets represent the significance of the detections.

These magnitudes are not corrected for the Galactic reddening of E(B-V)=0.285.
The value of the Galactic reddening is uncertain as the burst lies at a 
Galactic latitude of +5 degrees.
