A very bright GRB, 071125, occurred at about 50202 s UT (13:56:42).
It was observed by Mars Odyssey (GRS and HEND), Konus-Wind, Konus-A 
(Cosmos 2421), SuperAGILE, AGILE-MCAL, and Suzaku-WAM.  Ulysses and 
MESSENGER were off.

The burst light curve shows a multipeaked structure with a duration of 
~10 sec.

The IPN triangulated 3-sigma error box is as follows:
     RA(2000), deg            Dec(2000), deg
  251.230 (16h 44m 55s)   + 4.493 (+04d 29' 35")
  252.211 (16h 48m 51s)   + 5.230 (+05d 13' 48")
  251.602 (16h 46m 24s)   + 5.044 (+05d 02' 40")
  250.227 (16h 40m 55s)   + 3.691 (+03d 41' 28")
  250.858 (16h 43m 26s)   + 3.931 (+03d 55' 50")

The error box area is 0.532 sq. deg.
The box can be improved.

Preliminary analysis of the Konus-Wind data yields
a burst fluence of ~7x10:-5 erg/cm2 (in the 20 keV - 3 MeV range),
and Epeak of the time-integrated spectrum of ~300 keV.

Detailed spectral parameters will be reported later.
