D. M. Smith, R. P. Lin, J. McTiernan, R. Schwartz, C. Wigger, W.
Hajdas, and A. Zehnder, on behalf of the RHESSI GRB team, report:

Ulysses, Mars Odyssey-HEND, Konus-Wind, HETE-FREGATE (H2884), and
RHESSI observed this GRB at 61630 seconds.  As observed by Ulysses, it
had a duration of approximately 41 seconds, a 25-100 keV fluence of
approximately  1.4E-05 erg/cm2, and a peak flux of approximately
1.5E-06 erg/cm2 s over 0.25 seconds.

We have triangulated it to a preliminary, 3 sigma error box whose
approximate area is 100 sq. arcmin. and whose coordinates are:

    RA(2000)                              DEC(2000)
 ERROR BOX CENTER:   8 h 41 m 38.42 s    -82 o 18 '  26.07 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 1:  8 h 42 m 29.06 s    -82 o 18 '  53.30 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 2:  8 h 14 m 32.75 s    -81 o 28 '  14.96 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 3:  9 h 14 m 11.31 s    -83 o  0 '  36.18 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 4:  8 h 40 m 47.87 s    -82 o 17 '  58.47 " 

This error box may be improved.
