GCN Circular 5042
V. La Parola (INAF-IASFPa), E. Troja (INAF-IASFPa), G. Tagliaferri (INAF-OAB), D. N. Burrows (PSU) and J. Kennea (PSU) report on behalf of the Swift XRT Team: The XRT attempted to centroid on GRB 060501 at 09:10:08 UT, 3309 s after the burst. However, at this late time the burst was too faint for an on-board detection in the 2.5 s centroiding image, and the XRT switched immediately to PC mode. Using the first 4.5 ksec data set from the Malindi download, we find a single weak previously uncatalogued source within the BAT error box at: RA: 21 53 29.9 (J2000) Dec: +43 59 53.4 (J2000) with 5.5 arcsec uncertainty (90% confinement). The estimated flux is 2.6e-13 erg/sec/cm2, assuming Galactic absorption and a power law spectrum with photon index 2.0. This source is 58 arcsec from the BAT on-board position. The available data do not allow us to establish if this source is fading.
