The Fermi GBM team reports the detection of a likely LONG GRB

At 21:46:05 UT on 31 Dec 2022, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) triggered and located GRB 221231A (trigger 694215970.129412 / 221231907).

The on-ground calculated location, using the Fermi GBM trigger data, is RA = 332.7, Dec = 36.5 (J2000 degrees, equivalent to J2000 22h 10m, 36d 30'), with a statistical uncertainty of 5.2 degrees.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 50.0 degrees.
