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

At 20:26:30 UT on 5 Feb 2024, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) triggered and located GRB 240205A (trigger 728857595.713148 / 240205852).

The on-ground calculated location, using the Fermi GBM trigger data, is RA = 300.9, Dec = 20.5 (J2000 degrees, equivalent to J2000 20h 03m, 20d 30'), with a statistical uncertainty of 6.0 degrees.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 57.0 degrees.
