G. Di Cocco, F. Fuschino, M. Galli, C. Labanti, and M. Marisaldi,
on behalf of the AGILE MCAL team, report:

The short-duration, hard GRB 120519A has been observed by Fermi (GBM 
trigger 359140696), Konus-Wind, Swift (BAT),  MESSENGER (GRNS), INTEGRAL 
(SPI-ACS), Suzaku (WAM), and AGILE (MCAL), so far, at about 62295 s UT 
(17:18:15). The burst was outside the coded field of
view of the BAT.

We have triangulated it to a preliminary, 3 sigma error box whose
coordinates are:
   RA(2000), deg                 Dec(2000), deg
   178.366 (11h 53m 28s) +22.407 (+22d 24' 24")
   179.899 (11h 59m 36s) +24.184 (+24d 11' 02")
   178.690 (11h 54m 46s) +23.008 (+23d 00' 31")
   176.909 (11h 47m 38s) +20.581 (+20d 34' 53")
   178.049 (11h 52m 12s) +21.803 (+21d 48' 09")
The error box area is 0.60 sq. deg, and its maximum
dimension is 4.5 deg.

This box may be improved.

The time history and spectrum will be given in a forthcoming GCN Circular.
