O.J. Roberts (USRA/NASA-MSFC) reports on behalf of the Fermi-GBM Team:

"The Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) triggers 230206723/697396830 and
230206797/697403223 at 17:20:25.54 UT and 19:06:58.08 UT on 06 February 2023,
respectively, tentatively classified as GRBs, are in fact not due to a GRB.
These triggers are likely due to LS V +44 17 / RX J0440.9+4431."
