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

At 06:01:11.37 UT on 24 June 2024, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM)
triggered and located GRB 240624A (trigger 740901676/240624251).

The on-ground calculated location, using the Fermi GBM trigger data,
is RA = 114.37, Dec = -11.05 (J2000 degrees, equivalent to J2000 7h 37m, -11d 3'),
with a statistical uncertainty of 12.59 degrees.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 91 degrees.
