GRB 230512A: Tiled Swift observations
2023-05-12T19:05:37Z (a month ago)
Phil Evans at U of Leicester <>
P. A. Evans (U. Leicester) reports on behalf of the Swift team: Swift has initiated a series of observations, tiled on the sky, of the Fermi/LAT GRB 230512A. Automated analysis of the XRT data will be presented online at Any uncatalogued X-ray sources detected in this analysis will be reported on this website and via GCN COUNTERPART notices. The probability of finding serendipitous sources, unrelated to the Fermi/LAT event is high: any X-ray source considered to be a probable afterglow candidate will be reported via a GCN Circular after manual consideration. Details of the XRT automated analysis methods are detailed in Evans et al. (2007, A&A, 469, 379; 2009, MNRAS, 397, 1177 and 2014, ApJS, 210, 8). This circular is an official product of the Swift-XRT team.
