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

At 17:11:47 UT on 10 Jul 2024, the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) triggered and located GRB 240710A (trigger 742324312.207884 / 240710717).

The on-ground calculated location, using the Fermi GBM trigger data, is RA = 285.3, Dec = 7.5 (J2000 degrees, equivalent to J2000 19h 01m, 7d 30'), with a statistical uncertainty of 19.1 degrees.

The angle from the Fermi LAT boresight is 101.0 degrees.
