The long-duration GRB 220609B
(CALET-CGBM detection: Asaoka et al., GCN Circ 32185;
AstroSat-CZTI detection: Gopalakrishnan et al., GCN Circ 32186)
has been detected by Konus-Wind, CALET (CGBM), AstroSat (CZTI),
INTEGRAL (SPI-ACS), Mars-Odyssey (HEND), BepiColombo (MGNS),
and GECAM-B, so far, at about 44473 s UT (12:21:13).

We have triangulated it to a preliminary, 3 sigma error box
whose coordinates are:
  RA(2000), deg                 Dec(2000), deg
  347.791 (23h 11m 10s)  +0.385 ( +0d 23' 05")
  348.003 (23h 12m 01s)  -0.627 ( +0d 37' 39")
  347.702 (23h 10m 49s)  +0.442 ( +0d 26' 31")
  347.634 (23h 10m 32s)  +1.229 ( +1d 13' 46")
  347.880 (23h 11m 31s)  +0.327 ( +0d 19' 37")
The error box area is 515 sq. arcmin, and its maximum
dimension is 1.9 deg (the minimum one is 8.4 arcmin).
The Sun distance was 89 deg.

This box may be improved.

A triangulation map and HEALPix FITS file are posted at

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