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

At 06:06:35 UT on 24 May 2023, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) triggered and located GRB 230524A (trigger 706601200.806822 / 230524255).

The on-ground calculated location, using the Fermi GBM trigger data, is RA = 177.5, Dec = 16.3 (J2000 degrees, equivalent to J2000 11h 50m, 16d 18'), with a statistical uncertainty of 3.2 degrees.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 93.0 degrees.
