on behalf of the GRS/Odyssey GRB team, and

E. Mazets and S. Golenetskii, on behalf of the Konus-Wind GRB team, report:

Ulysses, Mars Odyssey-HEND, and Konus-Wind  observed this GRB at 11900
seconds.  As observed by Ulysses, it had a duration of approximately
125 seconds, a 25-100 keV fluence of approximately 5E-06 erg/cm2,
and a peak flux of approximately  6.3E-07 erg/cm2 s over 0.50 seconds.

We have triangulated it to a preliminary, 3 sigma error box whose
approximate area is 2300 sq. arcmin. and whose coordinates are:

    RA(2000)                              DEC(2000)
 ERROR BOX CENTER:   3 h  4 m 27.02 s     84 o 51 '  34.82 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 1:  2 h 10 m 27.92 s     85 o 31 '  19.15 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 2:  3 h 49 m 20.75 s     83 o 31 '  50.18 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 3:  1 h 58 m  2.97 s     85 o 52 '   7.15 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 4:  3 h 45 m 52.31 s     83 o 58 '   6.25 " 

This error box may be improved.
