Mars Odyssey (GRS), Konus-Wind, INTEGRAL (SPI-ACS), and
RHESSI observed this HETE event, whose error box was given in a GCN
Notice on 25 April, 20:04:48, Sequence Number 3.  Triangulation
gives an annulus centered at RA, Decl (2000)= 261.762, -24.435,
whose radius is 28.899 +/- 0.020 degrees (3 sigma).  This annulus
interesects the HETE WXM error box at:

RA(2000)	Decl(2000)
233.588        -41.467
233.553        -41.330
232.605        -39.894
232.564        -39.722

The area of the combined HETE WXM/IPN error box is ~250 sq. arcmin.
Only minor improvements to this error box are expected.
