B. Biltzinger, F. Kunzweiler, J. Burgess & J. Greiner (all MPE Garching) report: The public trigdat data of the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) trigger 706014351 at 11:05:46 on 17 May 2023 were automatically fitted for spectrum and sky location with BALROG (Burgess et al. 2018, MNRAS 476, 1427; Berlato et al. 2019, ApJ 873, 60). The best-fit position (1 sigma statistical errors) is: RA(2000.0) = 119.1+/-1.9 deg Decl.(2000.0) = -48.6+/-0.7 deg We estimate an additional systematic error of 1 deg.
