GCN Circular 22178
L. Izzo, D. A. Kann (both HETH/IAA-CSIC), J. P. U. Fynbo (DARK), A. J. Levan (U. Warwick), and N. R. Tanvir (U. Leicester) note on behalf of the Stargate Consortium: The XRT position of GRB 171205A (V. D'Elia et al. GCN #22177) contains a bright spiral galaxy 2MASX J11093966-1235116 which lies at z = 0.037 according to SIMBAD (6df Galaxy Catalog). The combination of a BAT image trigger, a bright XRT afterglow and lack of a bright optical afterglow may indicate a source similar to XRFs 060218 and 100316D. Multiwavelength follow-up is encouraged.
