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

"At 04:02:32.37 UT on 06 August 2023, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM)
triggered and located GRB 230806A (trigger 712987357/230806168).

The on-ground calculated location, using the Fermi GBM trigger data,
is RA = 63.12, Dec = -7.33 (J2000 degrees, equivalent to J2000 4h 12m, -7d 19'),
with a statistical uncertainty of 18.10 degrees.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 64 degrees.
