GCN Circular 5693
D.B. Fox (Penn State) reports: "I note the presence of a 2MASS galaxy, 2MASX J06310985-4554013, at 23 arcsec distance from the XRT position for GRB 061004 (Ziaeepour et al., GCN 5691). Estimated magnitudes of the host galaxy from the 2MASS catalog, via NED, are: J=15.17(24) mag, H=14.72(35) mag, and Ks=13.60(22) mag (uncertainties in the least significant digits are given in parentheses). The proximity of this galaxy to the X-ray afterglow may be interesting in light of the relatively short 6-s duration of GRB 061004."
