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

At 09:42:46 UT on 21 Apr 2023, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) triggered and located GRB 230421A (trigger 703762971.373066 / 230421405).

The on-ground calculated location, using the Fermi GBM trigger data, is RA = 44.5, Dec = 6.0 (J2000 degrees, equivalent to J2000 02h 58m, 6d 00'), with a statistical uncertainty of 5.5 degrees.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 99.0 degrees.
