TITLE: GCN CIRCULAR
SUBJECT: GRB 120624B: Swift detection of a burst
DATE: 12/06/25 15:35:04 GMT
FROM: Scott Barthelmy at NASA/GSFC <firstname.lastname@example.org>
S. D. Barthelmy (GSFC), J. Kennea (PSU), and J. Racusin (GSFC) report on behalf of the Swift Team:
At 22:19:51 UT, the Swift Burst Alert Telescope (BAT) triggered and
located GRB 120624B (trigger=525068) (also detected by Fermi-GBM, Circ 13377
and Fermi-LAT, Circ 13379). There were no real-time notices
for this event because it occurred during a TDRSS outage (22:07 to 22:46),
so none of the normal sequence of real-time notices were available.
There was no automated slew to this BAT trigger because of a Moon constraint.
The BAT on-board calculated location is RA, Dec 170.94, 8.93 (J2000),
with an uncertainty of 3 arcmin (radius, 90% containment,
including systematic uncertainty). We are in the process of getting
the full data set downlinked, and will produce the nomal "refined"
circular when it becomes available.
