The AGILE satellite detected the short burst GRB 200826A at T0=2020-08-26
04:29:52 (UTC), reported by Fermi-GBM (GCN #28284, trigger 620108997.570644
/ 200826187).

The event was detected by the scientific ratemeters of the Super-AGILE (SA;
18-60 keV) detector. The light curve shows a single peak profile, 
lasting 0.5
s and releasing ~84 counts above an average background rate of about 40
counts/s. The short burst was observed at an off-axis angle of about 54
degrees. The Super-AGILE light curve can be found here:

Additional analysis of AGILE data is in progress.
