on behalf of the GRS/Odyssey GRB team, report:

Analysis of the Konus data, and reanalysis of the RHESSI data for this
event (GCN 1930, 1931, and 1932) both indicate clearly that the correct
position for this burst is NOT the one reported in GCN 1932, but
rather, the position at 18 degrees from the Sun, i.e.:

    RA(2000)                              DEC(2000)
 ERROR BOX CENTER:  21 h 53 m 27.24 s    -10 o 52 '  14.24 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 1: 21 h 53 m 24.33 s    -10 o 50 '   7.63 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 2: 21 h 54 m  0.73 s    -10 o 51 '  12.32 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 3: 21 h 52 m 53.73 s    -10 o 53 '  17.74 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 4: 21 h 53 m 30.13 s    -10 o 54 '  20.87 " 

We regret any confusion caused by GCN 1932.
