on behalf of the Insight-HXMT/HE GRB team, report:

The long-duration, very bright GRB 200125B
(Fermi-GBM detection: The Fermi GBM team, GCN Circ. 26879;
BALROG localization: Biltzinger et al., GCN Circ. 26880;
Insight-HXMT/HE detection: Cai et al., GCN Circ. 26888)
was detected by Fermi (GBM trigger 601677816), Konus-Wind,
and Insight (HXMT/HE) at about 74611 s UT (20:43:31).

We have triangulated this GRB to a Konus-GBM annulus centered at
RA(2000)=321.900 deg (21h 27m 36s) Dec(2000)=-14.917 deg (-14d 55' 02")
whose radius is 86.537 +/- 0.136 deg (3 sigma) and a wider
Konus-HXMT annulus.

These annuli may be improved.

The annulus is consistent with, but reduces
the area of, the final Fermi-GBM (GCN Circ. 26879) and
BALROG (GCN Circ. 26880) localizations.

A triangulation map is posted at

The Konus-Wind time history and spectrum will be given in a forthcoming
GCN Circular.
