on behalf of the AGILE MCAL team report:

Konus-Wind, Konus-RF, Mars-Odyssey (GRS and HEND), and INTEGRAL-SPI-ACS
observed the intense GRB 090408b (Golenetskii et al., GCN 9121).  It was
also observed by AGILE-MCAL and SuperAGILE (outside the coded field of view).

We have triangulated it to the following 3-sigma error box:

        RA(2000), deg            Dec(2000), deg
    43.98 (02h 55m 56s)    +26.61 (+26d 36' 36")
    43.95 (02h 55m 48s)    +27.59 (+27d 35' 24")
    42.98 (02h 51m 55s)    +27.78 (+27d 46' 48")
    44.05 (02h 56m 12s)    +25.64 (+25d 38' 24")
    44.97 (02h 59m 53s)    +25.49 (+25d 29' 24")

The error box area is 1.48 sq. deg.
This error box may be improved.
