GRB mini-workshop 2006
GRB workshop 2009
On May 5, 2006 we participated in identification of the short GRB 050509b detected by the SWIFT observatory. An area of the burst localization was investigated with the BTA down to 26 st. magn. The host galaxy of GRB 050509b is most probably an elliptic galaxy with z = 0.225 which is neighbor to the localization area. Thus, our group participated in the very first identifications of short ( < 2 s ) GRBs.
GRB050509b is the first GRB identified in optical (with elliptical galaxy) in Summer 2005.
The paper is published in A &A, 439 (2005), L15-L18.
The observational results were obtained under a joint porgram of Instituto de Astrofisica de Andalucia (Alberto J. Castro-Tirado, IAA-CSIC, Spain) and SAO RAS
