of the HETE GRB team, report:

Ulysses and HETE observed this burst (HETE 2275, 53855 s).  As observed
by Ulysses, it had a duration of ~20 s, a 25-100 keV fluence of
~7.8E-06 erg/cm2, and a peak flux of ~7.0E-07 erg/cm2 s over 0.25
s.

We have triangulated it to a preliminary, 3 sigma annulus centered
at RA, Decl (2000)=345.048 o, -43.013 o, with radius 49.664 +/- 0.033
degrees.  This annulus intersects the HETE WXM position (Sequence
4) at just two points, reducing its area only slightly:

         RA                        DEC
     23 h 27 m 29.39 s       6 o 17' 47.58"
     23 h 27 m 19.78 s       6 o 18'  3.95"

A map will be posted shortly at ssl.berkeley.edu/ipn3/020819.

This annulus may be improved; it may become an error box when
the Mars Odyssey data become available.
