This event (GCN 1870) was also observed by Mars Odyssey and

We have triangulated it to a preliminary, 3 sigma error box 
with approximate area  68 square arcminutes whose coordinates are:

    RA(2000)                              DEC(2000)
 ERROR BOX CENTER:  12 h 26 m 22.80 s    -11 o 51 '  24.23 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 1: 12 h 26 m 30.37 s    -11 o 53 '  08.09 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 2: 12 h 25 m 27.01 s    -11 o 56 '  50.21 "
