A. Pelangeon & J-L. Atteia (LATT-OMP) report:

We have used the spectral parameters of the most intense
part of GRB 070917 provided by Golenetskii et al. (GCNC 6798)
to compute the spectral pseudo-redshift(**)  of this burst
detected by SWIFT-BAT (Cummings et al., GCNC 6791).

We find a pseudo-redshift pz= 2.40 +/- 1.20
