GRB 221021A: Fermi GBM Final Real-time Localization
2022-10-21T09:28:45Z (2 years ago)
Fermi GBM Team at MSFC/Fermi-GBM <>
The Fermi GBM team reports the detection of a likely LONG GRB

At 09:18:25 UT on 21 Oct 2022, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) triggered and located GRB 221021A (trigger 688036710.740176 / 221021388).

The on-ground calculated location, using the Fermi GBM trigger data, is RA = 218.7, Dec = -68.6 (J2000 degrees, equivalent to J2000 14h 34m, -68d 35'), with a statistical uncertainty of 11.9 degrees.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 132.0 degrees.
