GCN Circular 11440
J. R. Cummings (GSFC/UMBC/CRESST) on behalf of the Swift-BAT team At 23:53:29 UTC on December 4, 2010 Swift-BAT detected GRB 101204A (BAT trigger # 439806). No source was detected onboard. An automated script on the ground detected a source at RA, Dec 167.548, -20.434, which is RA (J2000) 11h 10m 11.6s Dec (J2000) -20d 26m 04s The source was 3.5% coded. As seen by BAT, the burst was a single gradual pulse about 10 seconds long. In the 10-second interval for which we have detailed event data, which covers almost all of the burst, the spectrum is best fitted by a simple power law with a photon index of 1.3 +- 0.2. The fluence from 15 to 150 keV was 1.2 +- 0.4 x 10^-6 erg/cm^2. The spectrum may be slightly distorted by edge of FOV effects, tending to reduce the number of lower-energy photons detected relative to higher-energy photons. A Swift TOO has been requested.
