in the field  of view of the IBIS telescope on board ESA's INTEGRAL
The burst  lasted about 4 seconds  and had a peak flux  of about 1-2
10^-7 erg/cm2/s in the 25-100 keV range.
The preliminary position is RA 18h50m and DEC +31deg 52s with an
uncertainty of 20' (radius) dominated by systematics.
A refined position will be reported as soon as available.
