The AGILE satellite detected the long burst GRB 200502A, reported by
Fermi/GBM (GCN #27677; trigger 610119998.856084/200502574) at T0 =
2020-05-02 13:46:33 (UT).

The event is visible in the scientific ratemeters of the SuperAGILE (SA;
20-60 keV) detector. The event lasted ~30 s and released a total number of
~1000 counts in the SA ratemeters (above a background of ~45 Hz). The SA
ratemeters light curve can be found at .

Additional analysis of AGILE data is in progress.
