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

At 22:13:31 UT on 17 Jun 2023, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) triggered and located GRB 230617A (trigger 708732816.996698 / 230617926).

The on-ground calculated location, using the Fermi GBM trigger data, is RA = 139.4, Dec = -70.5 (J2000 degrees, equivalent to J2000 09h 17m, -70d 30'), with a statistical uncertainty of 25.5 degrees.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 90.0 degrees.
