The LIGO Scientific Collaboration, the Virgo Collaboration, and the KAGRA Collaboration report:

We have conducted further analysis of the LIGO Hanford Observatory (H1) and LIGO Livingston Observatory (L1) data around the time of the compact binary merger (CBC) candidate S230706ah (GCN Circular ***CITE ORIGINAL GCN ID, e.g. 25012***). Parameter estimation has been performed using Bilby [1] and a new sky map, Bilby.multiorder.fits,0,
distributed via GCN Notice, is available for retrieval from the
GraceDB event page:

https://gracedb.ligo.org/superevents/S230706ah

For the Bilby.multiorder.fits,0 sky map, the 90% credible region is
1497 deg2. Marginalized over the whole sky, the a posteriori
luminosity distance estimate is 1962 +/- 594 Mpc (a posteriori mean
+/- standard deviation).

For further information about analysis methodology and the contents of
this alert, refer to the LIGO/Virgo/KAGRA Public Alerts User Guide
