W. Boynton, C. Fellows, K. Harshman, C. Shinohara and R. Starr, on
behalf of the GRS-Odyssey GRB team, report:

Ulysses, INTEGRAL (SPI-ACS), and Mars Odyssey (HEND) observed this
burst at 80086 s.  As observed by Ulysses, it had a duration of
approximately 6 seconds, a 25-100 keV fluence of approximately
3.0E-06 erg/cm2, and a peak flux of approximately  1.1E-06 erg/cm2 s
over 0.25 seconds.

We have triangulated it to two alternate, preliminary, 3 sigma error
boxes each with approximate area 10000 square arcminutes whose
coordinates are:

    RA(2000)                              DEC(2000)
 ERROR BOX CENTER:   7 h 14 m 28.98 s    -18 o  5 '  42.51 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 1:  7 h 14 m 56.07 s    -18 o 18 '  41.09 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 2:  6 h 57 m 38.92 s    -13 o 28 '  42.06 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 3:  7 h 33 m 48.74 s    -22 o 31 '  22.65 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 4:  7 h 14 m  2.13 s    -17 o 52 '  44.00 " 

                                       OR

 ERROR BOX CENTER:  15 h  6 m 21.92 s     19 o 58 '   2.34 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 4: 15 h  6 m 17.45 s     19 o 43 '  35.62 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 5: 15 h 15 m 31.52 s     25 o 44 '   3.13 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 6: 14 h 56 m 18.93 s     14 o  6 '  18.83 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 7: 15 h  6 m 26.25 s     20 o 12 '  27.83 " 

There is a chance that the ambiguity can be resolved by further processing.
These error boxes may be improved.
