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

At 07:16:16 UT on 5 Aug 2023, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) triggered and located GRB 230805A (trigger 712912581.49606 / 230805303).

The on-ground calculated location, using the Fermi GBM trigger data, is RA = 44.7, Dec = 47.6 (J2000 degrees, equivalent to J2000 02h 58m, 47d 36'), with a statistical uncertainty of 6.5 degrees.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 77.0 degrees.
