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

At 20:11:09 UT on 13 Feb 2024, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) triggered and located GRB 240213A (trigger 729547874.78288 / 240213841).

The on-ground calculated location, using the Fermi GBM trigger data, is RA = 166.4, Dec = -20.5 (J2000 degrees, equivalent to J2000 11h 05m, -20d 30'), with a statistical uncertainty of 1.6 degrees.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 112.0 degrees.
