4. Conclusions

No optical transient has been found within the SGR 0526-66 error box, nor at the position of the point X-ray source observed by ROSAT . This negative result could favour the existence of a beamed outflow that it is not aligned with the line of sight. The fact that we have not found transient optical emission associated to SGR 0526-66 from 2.6 to 6 days after the 5 March 1979 event is not surprising: no transient infrared emission was found either during a high activity period in the another SGR in a plerion, SGR 1806-20 (Castro-Tirado et al. 1998).
