GRB 080212: DSS/2MASS Galaxy at XRT position
2008-02-12T17:46:35Z (16 years ago)
Edo Berger at Princton U <>
E. Berger (Princeton) reports:

"Inspection of DSS and 2MASS images reveals an extended object coincident 
with the XRT position of GRB 080212 (trigger 303105).  The coordinates are 

 	RA = 15:24:35.19
 	DEC= -22:44:29.0

This indicates that the burst is likely at low redshift."
