C. Fletcher (USRA) and C. Meegan (UAH) report on behalf of
the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor Team:

"At 22:13:08.17 UT on 05 February 2024, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM)
triggered and located GRB 240205B (trigger 728863993/240205926).
which was also detected by Swift BAT (M. J. Moss et al. 2024, GCN 35683) and GECAM (W. Zhang et al. 2024, GCN 35689).
The Fermi GBM Real-time Final Localization (GCN 35682) is consistent with the Swift BAT position.

This burst was also independently detected by INTEGRAL SPI-ACS.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 112 degrees.

The GBM light curve consists of multiple peaks with a duration (T90)
of about 47 s (50-300 keV). The time-averaged spectrum
from T0-3.3 to T0+54.0 s is best fit by
a Band function with Epeak = 34 +/- 0.8 keV,
alpha = -1.69 +/- 0.02, and beta = -2.78 +/- 0.08.

The event fluence (10-1000 keV) in this time interval is
(4.77 +/- 0.05)E-05 erg/cm^2. The 1-sec peak photon flux measured
starting from T0+38 s in the 10-1000 keV band is 81.2 +/- 0.9 ph/s/cm^2.

The spectral analysis results presented above are preliminary;
final results will be published in the GBM GRB Catalog:
