on behalf of the AGILE Team, report:
"SuperAGILE detected a relatively weak gamma ray burst
on July 26th 2008, at 01:26:10 UT. The event was approximately
25 degrees off-axis, with a duration of about 12s in the 20-60 keV
energy range, with a single peak structure.
The event was detected during the ground processing, and unambigously
localized in one of the two instrument coordinates, while in the other
it showed a significance of about 4-sigma.
Based on this localization, the burst position was reconstructed
as (RA, Dec) (20.398 deg, 13.913 deg), which is:
with an uncertainty of 5' 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."
