GCN Circular 7304

Subject
GRB 080212: Gemini-South optical observations

E. Berger (Princeton) reports:

"A 900-sec spectrum obtained with Gemini-South/GMOS reveals that the 
object near the XRT position is a late-K star and not a galaxy as 
initially indicated in GCN 7294.

In a 60 sec r-band acquisition image we find a faint source coincident 
with the XRT position at:
 	RA = 15:24:35.4
 	DEC = -22:44:30	(J2000)

This object is consistent with the positions reoprted in GCNs 7302 and 
7303."
