(i.e. the Swift-BAT team):

Automated BAT ground analysis found a burst that occurred at 01:55:39 UT 
with a significance of 8.2 sigma (15-200 keV) from the event data.  
The event is temporally coincident with the Fermi GBM 352346136.  The best 
BAT location is RA, Dec = 122.4506, +29.6598 deg, which is

  RA(J2000)  =  08h 09m 48.14s 
  Dec(J2000) = +29d 39' 35.3" 

with an uncertainty of 2.5 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).

Swift ToO has been requested.
