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

At 01:48:09 UT on 18 Jan 2024, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) triggered and located GRB 240118A (trigger 727235294.440514 / 240118075).

The on-ground calculated location, using the Fermi GBM trigger data, is RA = 14.1, Dec = 30.9 (J2000 degrees, equivalent to J2000 00h 56m, 30d 53'), with a statistical uncertainty of 1.0 degrees.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 63.0 degrees.
