Using the BepiColombo (MGNS) data we have improved
the previous IPN error box (Svinkin et al., GCN 36090).

The coordinates of the updated 3 sigma error box are:
  RA(2000), deg                 Dec(2000), deg
  248.823 (16h 35m 17s) +43.618 (+43d 37' 03")
  248.867 (16h 35m 28s) +43.236 (+43d 14' 08")
  248.814 (16h 35m 15s) +43.972 (+43d 58' 19")
  248.777 (16h 35m 07s) +43.999 (+43d 59' 57")
  248.831 (16h 35m 20s) +43.263 (+43d 15' 47")
The error box area is 65 sq. arcmin, and its maximum
dimension is 46 arcmin (the minimum one is 1 arcmin).
The Sun distance was 111 deg.

This box may be further improved.
