behalf of the GRS-Odyssey GRB team, report:

The long-duration, very bright GRB 141104A has been observed by Swift 
(BAT), Konus-Wind, Mars Odyssey (HEND), MESSENGER (GRNS), and  INTEGRAL 
(SPI-ACS), so far, at about 200 s UT (00:03:20). 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
   279.488 (18h 37m 57s) -12.702 (-12d 42' 07")
   279.368 (18h 37m 28s) -12.296 (-12d 17' 45")
   279.549 (18h 38m 12s) -12.326 (-12d 19' 32")
   279.607 (18h 38m 26s) -13.111 (-13d 06' 38")
   279.426 (18h 37m 42s) -13.078 (-13d 04' 41")
The error box area is 492 sq. arcmin, and its maximum
dimension is 51 arcmin (the minimum one is 10 arcmin).
The Sun distance was 58.5 deg.

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