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

At 17:48:03 UT on 23 Jan 2024, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) triggered and located GRB 240123B (trigger 727724888.218344 / 240123742).

The on-ground calculated location, using the Fermi GBM trigger data, is RA = 312.7, Dec = 17.3 (J2000 degrees, equivalent to J2000 20h 50m, 17d 18'), with a statistical uncertainty of 6.9 degrees.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 51.0 degrees.
