GCN Circular 9868
J. A. Kennea (PSU) and G. Stratta (ASDC) report on behalf of the Swift/XRT team: At 23:36 UT, September 2nd, 2009, Swift began a Target of Opportunity observation of the Fermi GBM/LAT discovered burst GRB 090902B (de Palma et al., GCN #9867, Bissaldi et al., GCN #9866), approximately 12.5 hours after the Fermi detection. In early data we detect an uncatalogued point source at the following location, RA, Dec = 264.93984, 27.32405, which is equivalent to: RA (J2000) = 17h 39m 45.6s Dec (J2000) = +27d 19' 26.6'' with an estimated uncertainty of 4.2 arcseconds radius (90% confidence). This position is 3.2 arcmin from the reported LAT position, inside the LAT error radius. At this time we cannot confirm if the point source is fading. Observations of this field are on-going.
