GCN Circular 379
K. Hurley, on behalf of the Ulysses GRB team, and M. Feroci, on behalf of the BeppoSAX GRB team, report: We have obtained a preliminary IPN annulus for GRB990704. This annulus is centered at RA=147.4103 deg., Decl.=-7.9861 deg. (J2000), and has a radius of 37.4724 +/- 0.047 deg. (3 sigma). It intersects the BeppoSAX WFC error circle (GCN 366) to form a 75 arcmin.^2 error box whose corners are: RA(2000) Decl.(2000) 12h 19m 41.9s -3o 54' 27" 12h 19m 34.4s -3o 41' 17" 12h 19m 19.3s -3o 54' 42" 12h 19m 12.3s -3o 42' 39" This error box includes, but does not reduce the size of, that of the BeppoSAX NFI source (GCN 375) and the ASCA source (GCN 372), suggesting that this fading source is indeed the X-ray counterpart to the GRB. An image may be found at ssl.berkeley.edu/ipn3/990704/. The optical source in this image is the one referred to in GCN 363 and GCN 369. This IPN annulus can be updated when the final Ulysses data become available, but due to the weakness of the GRB, the annulus width will probably not be reduced substantially.
