The bright, short-duration GRB 230906A
(Fermi-GBM detection: The Fermi GBM team, GCN Circ. 34631)
was detected by Fermi (GBM trigger 715697712), INTEGRAL (SPI-ACS),
Konus-Wind, and Mars-Odyssey (HEND) at about 46507 s UT (12:55:07).

We have triangulated it to a preliminary, 3 sigma error box
whose coordinates are:
  RA(2000), deg                 Dec(2000), deg
   79.757 (05h 19m 02s) -47.887 (-47d 53' 13")
   79.710 (05h 18m 50s) -47.945 (-47d 56' 41")
   79.748 (05h 19m 00s) -47.986 (-47d 59' 08")
   79.803 (05h 19m 13s) -47.829 (-47d 49' 45")
   79.765 (05h 19m 04s) -47.788 (-47d 47' 17")
The error box area is 20 sq. arcmin, and its maximum
dimension is 12 arcmin (the minimum one is 2 arcmin).
The Sun distance was 91 deg.

The IPN localization is consistent with, but reduces the area of,
the Fermi-GBM final localization (glg_healpix_all_bn230715190_v00).

Swift ToO has been submitted (GCN 34636).

This localization may be improved.

A triangulation map and HEALPix FITS file are posted at

The Konus-Wind time history and spectrum will be given
in a forthcoming GCN Circular.
