W. Boynton, C. Fellows, K. Harshman, H. Enos, and R. Starr,
on behalf of the GRS-Odyssey GRB team, report:

The extremely bright, long-duration GRB 190129B
was detected by Konus-Wind, INTEGRAL (SPI-ACS), and
Mars-Odyssey (HEND) at about 44134 s UT (12:15:34).

We have triangulated it to a preliminary, 3 sigma error box
whose coordinates are:
   RA(2000), deg                 Dec(2000), deg
   117.285 (07h 49m 08s)  +1.257 ( +1d 15' 24")
   117.253 (07h 49m 01s)  +0.258 ( +0d 15' 28")
   117.088 (07h 48m 21s)  +0.627 ( +0d 37' 38")
   117.326 (07h 49m 18s)  +2.291 ( +2d 17' 26")
   117.485 (07h 49m 56s)  +1.896 ( +1d 53' 45")
The error box area is about 1284 sq. arcmin, and its maximum
dimension is 2.034 deg (the minimum one is 12.84 arcmin).
The Sun distance was about 157 deg.

This box may be improved.

The time history and spectrum will be given in forthcoming
GCN Circulars.
