behalf of the Swift-BAT team, and

D. M. Smith, on behalf of the RHESSI GRB team, report:

The long-duration, very intense GRB 140825A has been observed by 
Konus-Wind, MESSENGER (GRNS), Mars Odyssey (HEND), Swift (BAT), RHESSI, 
and INTEGRAL (SPI-ACS), so far, at about 24925 s UT (06:55:25). The 
burst was outside the coded field of view of the BAT.

We have triangulated it to a preliminary, 3 sigma error box whose 
coordinates are:
    RA(2000), deg                 Dec(2000), deg
     88.715 (05h 54m 51s) -11.830 (-11d 49' 48")
     88.611 (05h 54m 27s) -11.630 (-11d 37' 48")
     88.657 (05h 54m 38s) -11.950 (-11d 57' 01")
     88.818 (05h 55m 16s) -12.029 (-12d 01' 46")
     88.772 (05h 55m 05s) -11.710 (-11d 42' 36")
The error box area is 169 sq. arcmin, and its maximum
dimension is 27 arcmin (the minimum one is 9 arcmin).

This box may be improved.

The time history and spectrum will be given in a forthcoming GCN Circular.
