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

At 23:55:14 UT on 18 Sep 2023, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) triggered and located GRB 230918B (trigger 716774119.92359 / 230918997).

The on-ground calculated location, using the Fermi GBM trigger data, is RA = 307.7, Dec = -48.4 (J2000 degrees, equivalent to J2000 20h 30m, -48d 23'), with a statistical uncertainty of 6.3 degrees.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 47.0 degrees.
