GCN Circular 23184
P.A. Evans, M.R. Goad and A.P. Beardmore (U. Leicester) report on behalf of the Swift-XRT team: Using 973 s of XRT Photon Counting mode data and 1 UVOT images, we find an astrometrically corrected X-ray position (using the XRT-UVOT alignment and matching UVOT field sources to the USNO-B1 catalogue) RA, Dec = 268.71784, -25.79805 which is equivalent to: RA (J2000): 17 54 52.28 Dec (J2000): -25 47 53.0 with an uncertainty of 2.0 arcsec (radius, 90% confidence). This position may be improved as more data are received. The latest position can be viewed athttp://www.swift.ac.uk/xrt_positions. Position enhancement is described by Goad et al. (2007, A&A, 476, 1401) and Evans et al. (2009, MNRAS, 397, 1177). Preliminary analysis of the XRT light curve (http://www.swift.ac.uk/xrt_curves/00856977/) suggests that this object is likely a GRB, not a Galactic transient. Analysis is ongoing. This circular is an official product of the Swift-XRT team.
