the CALET Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (CGBM) at 21:44:25.20 UTC 
on February 4, 2023
The burst signal was seen by only the SGM detector.

The burst light curve shows a double-peaked structure that starts
at T+2.3 sec, peaks at T+54.1 sec and ends at T+65.0 sec.
The T90 and T50 durations measured by the SGM data are 59.5 +/- 0.9 sec
and 11.6 +/- 0.8 sec (40-1000 keV), respectively.

The ground-processed light curve is available at

The CALET data used in this analysis are provided by
the Waseda CALET Operation Center located at Waseda University.
