on behalf of the Swift-BAT team, and

W. Boynton, C. Fellows, K. Harshman, H. Enos, and R. Starr,
on behalf of the GRS-Odyssey GRB team, report:

The long-duration GRB 210925B
was detected by Fermi (GBM trigger 654225613), Konus-Wind,
Mars-Odyssey (HEND), INTEGRAL (SPI-ACS), and Swift-BAT
at about 4809 s UT (01:20:09).
The burst was outside the coded field of view of the BAT.

We have triangulated it to a preliminary, 3 sigma error box
whose coordinates are:
  RA(2000), deg                 Dec(2000), deg
   48.817 (03h 15m 16s) -52.863 (-52d 51' 45")
   47.551 (03h 10m 12s) -53.723 (-53d 43' 21")
   50.006 (03h 20m 01s) -52.058 (-52d 03' 29")
   50.027 (03h 20m 06s) -51.978 (-51d 58' 41")
   47.579 (03h 10m 19s) -53.644 (-53d 38' 39")
The error box area is 335 sq. arcmin, and its maximum
dimension is 2.3 deg (the minimum one is 2.5 arcmin).
The Sun distance was 113 deg.

This box may be improved.

The time history and spectrum will be given in forthcoming GCN Circulars.
