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

A long-duration GRB 190304A was detected by Fermi (GBM;
trigger 573421048), Konus-Wind, Mars-Odyssey (HEND),
and Swift (BAT), at about 70642 s UT (19:37:22).
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
    16.909 (01h 07m 38s) -80.695 (-80d 41' 41")
    14.558 (00h 58m 14s) -80.443 (-80d 26' 35")
    20.223 (01h 20m 54s) -80.804 (-80d 48' 14")
    19.382 (01h 17m 32s) -80.930 (-80d 55' 49")
    13.675 (00h 54m 42s) -80.556 (-80d 33' 21")
The error box area is about 581 sq. arcmin, and its maximum
dimension is 1.09 deg (the minimum one is 9.7 arcmin).
The Sun distance was about 76 deg.

This box may be improved.

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