The long-duration GRB 220624A
(Fermi/GBM detection: Fermi GBM Team, GCN 32256;
AGILE detection: Ursi et al., GCN 32259;
AGILE/GRID detection: Verrecchia et al., GCN 32261;
Swift/BAT-GUANO detection: Tohuvavohu et al., GCN 32263)
has been detected by Fermi (GBM trigger 677732320),
Konus-Wind, Mars-Odyssey (HEND), BepiColombo (MGNS),
CALET (CGBM), AGILE (SA, MCAL, AC), and Swift (BAT),
so far, at about 10715 s UT (02:58:35).
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
  179.348 (11h 57m 24s) +16.691 (+16d 41' 27")
  179.501 (11h 58m 00s) +16.922 (+16d 55' 18")
  179.357 (11h 57m 26s) +16.791 (+16d 47' 29")
  179.194 (11h 56m 47s) +16.456 (+16d 27' 20")
  179.339 (11h 57m 21s) +16.590 (+16d 35' 25")
The error box area is 91 sq. arcmin, and its maximum
dimension is 33 arcmin (the minimum one is 4 arcmin).
The Sun distance was 80 deg.

This box may be improved.

The IPN localization is consistent with, but reduces the area of, the
Fermi-GBM final localization (GCN 32256).

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.
