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

At 17:22:58 UT on 3 Sep 2023, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) triggered and located GRB 230903A (trigger 715454583.81493 / 230903724).

The on-ground calculated location, using the Fermi GBM trigger data, is RA = 13.4, Dec = -13.5 (J2000 degrees, equivalent to J2000 00h 53m, -13d 30'), with a statistical uncertainty of 16.6 degrees.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 70.0 degrees.
