Phil Evans at U of Leicester <>
P.A. Evans (U. Leicester) and D.M. Palmer (LANL) report on behalf of the
Swift team:

Due to a telemetry gap, the trigger time of GRB 180205A was not reported 
in the early GCN Circulars.

The BAT trigger time was 04:25:29.3 UT (on 2018 Feb 5). We apologise for 
any inconvenience caused by the omission.

This circular is an official product of the Swift team.

[GCN OPS NOTE(06feb18): Per author's request, "UT" was added to the
time listed in the second sentence.]
