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

At 22:34:14 UT on 18 Nov 2023, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) triggered and located GRB 231118B (trigger 722039659.86232 / 231118940).

The on-ground calculated location, using the Fermi GBM trigger data, is RA = 348.9, Dec = 33.6 (J2000 degrees, equivalent to J2000 23h 15m, 33d 36'), with a statistical uncertainty of 1.0 degrees.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 83.0 degrees.
