GCN Circular 535
M. Boer, J.L. Atteia, A. Klotz, CESR/CNRS communicates: TAROT has imaged the position of BATSE trigger 7976 on Feb. 1, 2000, at 03:02UT. A transient source appears at T0 + 55min, consistent with the BATSE LOCBURST and the IPN positions (K. Hurley, private communication). No prior image of this source has been acquired, because it is too far from the BATSE FINAL position. The source is at the following 2000.0 position: 9h 16m 08.8 +18d 06' 13", +-5" and its apparent unfiltered magnitude is 15 +-1. We could not see it on subsequent frames taken at least 30 min after. We warn potential observers that a high background of unidentified transient sources has been observed in this region, though it is the only one in the IPN error box.
