on behalf of the AGILE Team, report:

"SuperAGILE detected a gamma ray burst on 25 August 2008, at 17:46:40 UT. 
The event was approximately 10 degrees off-axis, with a duration of about 
50 s in the 20-60 keV energy range, with a multi-peaked structure.
The burst position was reconstructed  as (RA, Dec) 
(209.281 deg, -68.943 deg), which is:

RA(J2000)  = 13h 57m 07.42s
Dec(J2000) = -68d 56' 34.0"

with an uncertainty of 3' radius. The given uncertainty accounts
for both the statistical and systematic errors.

An analysis of the AGILE Gamma Ray Imager (GRID) data is in progress."
