Gamma-ray bursts: Historical afterglows and early-time observations

Alberto J. Castro-Tirado, Vladimir V. Sokolov and Sergey S. Guziy

Abstract

      We discuss two historical afterglows (GRB 920723 and 920925C) prior to the Afterglow Era that started in 1997. We show how the use of both the 6-meter BTA in Zelenchuk (Russia) and 10.4-m GTC in La Palma (Spain) have benefited the study of GRB afterglows and their host galaxies. Moreover, when completed with our BOOTES Global Network of 0.6-meter robotic telescopes, this result had completed studying the early phases starting seconds after the trigger.
