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

At 09:52:36 UT on 18 Sep 2023, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) triggered and located GRB 230918A (trigger 716723561.504536 / 230918412).

The on-ground calculated location, using the Fermi GBM trigger data, is RA = 222.5, Dec = -11.6 (J2000 degrees, equivalent to J2000 14h 50m, -11d 35'), with a statistical uncertainty of 17.1 degrees.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 63.0 degrees.
