The Fermi GBM team reports the detection of a likely LONG GRB

At 00:49:47 UT on 16 Nov 2020, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) triggered and located GRB 201116A (trigger 627180592.69203 / 201116035).

The on-ground calculated location, using the Fermi GBM trigger data, is RA = 149.5, Dec = -4.2 (J2000 degrees, equivalent to J2000 09h 58m, -4d 12'), with a statistical uncertainty of 1.0 degrees.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 14.0 degrees.
