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

"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).
which was also detected by Swift BAT (N. J. Klingler et al. 2024, GCN 36743).
The Fermi GBM on-ground location is consistent with the Swift BAT position.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 83 degrees.

The GBM light curve consists of a single emission episode with a duration (T90)
of about 2 s (50-300 keV). The time-averaged spectrum
from T0-3.1 to T0+2.0 s is best fit by
a power law function with an exponential high-energy cutoff.
The power law index is -0.45 +/- 0.39 and the cutoff energy,
parameterized as Epeak, is 90 +/- 13 keV.

The event fluence (10-1000 keV) in this time interval is
(7.0 +/- 0.8)E-07 erg/cm^2. The 64-ms peak photon flux measured
starting from T0+0.38 s in the 10-1000 keV band is 6 +/- 1 ph/s/cm^2.

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