Phil Evans at U of Leicester <>
P.A. Evans (U. Leicester) reports on behalf of the Swift-XRT team:

Using  promptly downlinked XRT event data for GRB 220706A, we find an
enhanced XRT position of the afterglow: RA, Dec: 0.60455, -16.41107
which is equivalent to:
   RA (J2000)  = 00 02 25.09
   Dec (J2000) = -16 24 39.9
with an uncertainty of 1.9 arcseconds (radius, 90% confidence).
Analysis of the promptly available data is online at

Position enhancement is is described by Goad et al. (2007, A&A, 476,
1401) and Evans et al. (2009, MNRAS, 397, 1177).
