A large fraction of gamma-ray bursts temporarily emit optical light, i.e. optical afterglows and optical transients. So far, optical transients have only been detected after related gamma-ray satellite detection. However, taking into account their optical magnitudes at maximum light, these objects should be detectable in various historical and recent optical surveys, including the photographic sky patrol. Here we report on an extended study based on blink-comparison of 5004 Bamberg Observatory Southern Sky Patrol Plates performed within a student high school project (Jugend Forscht).

A substantial fraction of gamma-ray bursts is related to objects emitting temporarily optical light, i.e. optical afterglows and optical transients. So far, these phenomena (optical transients) were detected only after related gamma-ray satellite detection. However, taking into account their optical magnitudes at maximum light, these objects should be detectable in various historical and recent optical surveys, including photographic sky patrol.

We report on an ongoing study based on blink-comparison of more than 5000 Bamberg Observatory Southern Sky Patrol Plates performed within a continuation of a student high school project (Jugend Forscht). After a detailed analyses and classification, 6 non-classified objects were identified as emulsion defects, 19 as asteroids, 37 as variable stars, and 6 as real OT-GRB candidates. © Czech Technical University in Prague, 2013.
