GCN Circular 8868
A.P. Beardmore and K.L. Page (U. Leicester) report on behalf of the Swift-XRT team : The Swift-XRT started observing the field of GRB 090201 (Oates et al, GCN Circ. 8865) in photon counting mode at 18:50:40.7UT, 63.6 minutes after the trigger. In 1.4 ks of promptly downlinked data we detect a source at a position of RA, Dec = 92.0530, -46.5888, which is RA (J2000) = 06h 08m 12.74s Dec (J2000) = -46d 35m 19.8s with an uncertainty of 3.5 arcsec (radius, 90% containment). The source is 55.5 arcsec from the reported BAT position and within its error circle. We do not have sufficient data at this stage to tell if the source is fading.
