GCN Circular 8379
P.A. Evans (U. Leicester) reports on behalf of the Swift-XRT Team We have obtained 2 ks of XRT Photon Counting mode data of GRB 081016 (Gotz et al. GCN Circ. 8377), beginning 20.4 ks after the INTEGRAL trigger. We find an uncatalogued X-ray source at RA,Dec, 255.57032, -23.33556 which is equvialent to: RA (J2000.0): 17 02 16.88 Dec (J2000.0): -23:20:08.0 with an estimated uncertainty of 3.6" (radius, 90% confidence). This position is 21" from the INTEGRAL position, within the INTEGRAL error circle. It is not currently possible to determine whether this source is fading. Further observations are planned. This circular is an official product of the Swift-XRT team.
