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

At 12:30:10 UT on 18 Oct 2023, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) triggered and located GRB 231018A (trigger 719325015.663762 / 231018521).

The on-ground calculated location, using the Fermi GBM trigger data, is RA = 3.0, Dec = 50.7 (J2000 degrees, equivalent to J2000 00h 12m, 50d 42'), with a statistical uncertainty of 1.0 degrees.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 131.0 degrees.
