GRB 210410A: Swift XRT localization

report on behalf of the Neil Gehrels Swift Observatory Team:

Swift BAT triggered on GRB 210410A, previously reported by Fermi/GBM (GCN #29777). 
Due to a telemetry drop-out, no prompt BAT data are available, however XRT has 
localized the source. 

Using promptly downlinked data we find an uncatalogued X-ray source
located at RA, Dec 269.75417, 45.36339 which is equivalent to:
   RA(J2000)  = 17h 59m 01.00s
   Dec(J2000) = +45d 21' 48.2"
with an uncertainty of 6.1 arcseconds (radius, 90% containment). This
position may be improved as more data are received; the latest position
is available at No spectrum from the
promptly downlinked event data is yet available to determine the column
