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

"At 06:19:19.82 UT on 09 April 2024, the Fermi Gamma-Ray Burst Monitor
triggered and located GRB 240209A (trigger 729152364 / 240209263).

The on-ground calculated location, using the GBM trigger data, 
is RA = 259.8, DEC = 70.5 (J2000 degrees, equivalent 
to 17h 19m, 70d 30'), with an uncertainty of 9.1 degrees.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight at the GBM trigger time is 31 degrees.
