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

At 22:01:39 UT on 4 Mar 2023, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) triggered and located GRB 230304C (trigger 699660104.796088 / 230304918).

The on-ground calculated location, using the Fermi GBM trigger data, is RA = 280.7, Dec = -10.8 (J2000 degrees, equivalent to J2000 18h 42m, -10d 48'), with a statistical uncertainty of 5.2 degrees.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 63.0 degrees.
