GRB 221023A: Fermi GBM Final Localization
2022-10-24T13:22:51Z (2 years ago)
Rachel Dunwoody at UCD <>
The Fermi GBM team reports the detection of a likely long GRB

At 20:41:34.92 UT on 23 October 2022, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor
(GBM) triggered and located GRB 221023A (trigger 688250499 / 221023862).

The on-ground calculated location, using the Fermi GBM trigger data, is RA
= 232.3, Dec = 11.8 (J2000 degrees, equivalent to J2000 15h 29m, 11d 48'),
with a statistical uncertainty of 1 degree.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 52 degrees.
