Using the Konus-Wind data we have triangulated GRB 230307A
(GCNs 33405, 33406, 33407, 33410, 33411, 33412, 33413, 33414,
33415, 33416, 33418, 33424)
to the 3 sigma error box whose coordinates are:
   RA(2000), deg                 Dec(2000), deg
    60.819 (04h 03m 17s) -75.379 (-75d 22' 43")
    61.075 (04h 04m 18s) -75.436 (-75d 26' 10")
    61.016 (04h 04m 04s) -75.358 (-75d 21' 29")
    60.565 (04h 02m 16s) -75.321 (-75d 19' 14")
    60.622 (04h 02m 29s) -75.399 (-75d 23' 56")
The error box area is 30 sq. arcmin, and its maximum
dimension is 10 arcmin (the minimum one is 4.2 arcmin).
The Sun distance was 80 deg.

This box may be further improved.

The Swift ToO is ongoing.
