V. Connaughton, M. S. Briggs, C. Meegan, V. Pelassa, and A. Goldstein, 
on behalf of the Fermi GBM team, report:

GRB 160816A has been observed by Konus-Wind (GCN 19810), Fermi GBM and LAT
(GCN 19804, GCN 19802), and Mars Odyssey-HEND, so far.  We have triangulated
it to a preliminary annulus centered at RA, Dec (2000)=63.3328, 24.0531 degrees,
with radius 83.8027 +/- 0.1087 degrees (3 sigma).  The center line of the annulus passes 0.0086 degrees
from the Swift XRT source (GCN 19806), supporting the conclusion that this source
is the GRB afterglow.  A map has been posted at ssl.berkeley.edu/ipn3/160816A.
