At 10:29:53.55 on September 28, 2014, Fermi-GBM (trigger 433592996/140928437) triggered on GRB 140928A, which entered the Fermi-LAT
field of view at T0+1550 s, and was observed until T0+3200 s, during which the LAT detected high-energy emission.
The best LAT on-ground location is found to be:
RA, Dec = 43.81 , -56.08 (J2000)
with an error radius of 0.16 deg (90% containment, statistical error only). This was 110 deg from the LAT boresight at the time of the trigger.
The data from the Fermi-LAT show a significant increase in the event rate at a position consistent with the GBM localization.
More than 20 photons above 100 MeV are observed from 1550 s (when the GRB entered the LAT FOV) to 3200s (when the spacecraft entered
the SAA) after the GBM trigger.
The highest-energy photon is a 35 GeV event which is observed 3100 seconds after the GBM trigger.
A Swift ToO has been approved for this burst.
The Fermi-LAT point of contact for this burst is Makoto Arimoto (email@example.com).
The Fermi-LAT is a pair conversion telescope designed to cover the energy band from 20 MeV to greater than 300 GeV.
It is the product of an international collaboration between NASA and DOE in the U.S. and many scientific institutions
across France, Italy, Japan and Sweden.
