AGILE detected a long burst at T0 = 2019-09-28 13:13:48.39 +/- 0.01 s
(UTC). The event is visible in the scientific ratemeters (RMs) of the
Super-AGILE (SA; 18-60 keV), Anti-Coincidence (AC; 50-200 keV), and
Mini-CALorimeter (MCAL; 0.4-100 MeV) detectors. Their light curves show a
multi-peaked profile, lasting ~20 s and releasing ~2,200 counts in the SA
RMs, lasting ~30 s and releasing ~160,000 counts in the AC RMs, and lasting
~20 s and releasing ~73,200 counts in the MCAL RMs. The ratemeters light
curves can be found at

The event also triggered two Mini-Calorimeter (MCAL) data acquisitions (in
the 0.4-100 MeV energy range). Additional analysis of the AGILE data is in
progress.
