and

J. Goldsten, on behalf of the MESSENGER NS GRB team, report:

This bright, long GRB was detected by Fermi (GBM), Suzaku (WAM),
Konus-Wind, Mars Odyssey (HEND), and MESSENGER (GRNS) AT 04:07:36 UT on
March 24, 2010.  We have triangulated it to a preliminary, 38 square
arcminute (3 sigma) error box whose coordinates are:


         RA(2000)       Dec(2000)
Center   39.672         -19.287 

Corners  39.713         -19.311
         39.717         -19.449
         39.628         -19.123
         39.632         -19.262

This error box may be improved.  Details of this burst will be presented
in forthcoming GCN Circulars.
