On UT 2011 June 3.505, the Swift satellite slewed to PTF11eon/SN2011dh (ATEL#3398) under Target ID 32017. The X-ray detection was discussed in ATEL#3400. This supernova is also detected in Ultra-Violet. The UVOT magnitudes are approximately, UVW1=15.2, UVW2=15.7, UM2=15.5 and U=14.9. Additional monitoring is underway.
We are grateful to the Swift team, especially Neil Gehrels, Jamie Kennea and Marg Chester, for waking up to schedule our highest priority request for these observations as quickly as possible.
