A.S. Kozyrev, D.V. Golovin, M.L. Litvak, I.G. Mitrofanov, and A.B. Sanin on behalf of the MGNS/BepiColombo team, J. Benkhoff on behalf of the BepiColombo team, D. Svinkin, D. Frederiks, A. Ridnaia, A. Lysenko, and T. Cline on behalf of the Konus-Wind team, A. Goldstein, M. S. Briggs, C. Wilson-Hodge, and E. Burns on behalf of the Fermi GBM team, and S. Barthelmy, J. Cummings, H. Krimm, D. Palmer, and A. Tohuvavohu on behalf of the Swift-BAT team, report: Using the BepiColombo (MGNS) data we have improved the previous IPN box (Svinkin et al., GCN Circ. 33802), The coordinates of the updated 3 sigma error box are: --------------------------------------------- RA(2000), deg Dec(2000), deg --------------------------------------------- Center: 295.623 (19h 42m 30s) +38.267 (+38d 16' 00") Corners: 295.645 (19h 42m 35s) +38.328 (+38d 19' 39") 295.609 (19h 42m 26s) +38.353 (+38d 21' 10") 295.601 (19h 42m 24s) +38.206 (+38d 12' 20") 295.637 (19h 42m 33s) +38.180 (+38d 10' 49") --------------------------------------------- The error box area is 15 sq. arcmin, and its maximum dimension is 10 arcmin (the minimum one is 1.7 arcmin). The Sun distance was 96 deg. This box may be further improved. None of the optical and X-ray transients found during the burst follow-up (GCNs 33784, 33789, 33796) are inside the box.
