D. N. Burrows, J. E. Hill,  G. Chincarini, J. Nousek, N. Gehrels, and P. Schady
report on behalf of the Swift XRT team:

The Swift XRT reported a prompt position for GRB050117.  The burst was
discovered by the BAT and the Swift spacecraft performed a prompt slew.   The
XRT found a bright source in the field and imaged it at
IMG_START_DATE:  13387 TJD;    17 DOY;   05/01/17
IMG_START_TIME:  46548.64 SOD {12:55:48.64} UT

The XRT position is
GRB_RA:          358.4644d {+23h 53m 51s} (J2000),
                 358.5274d {+23h 54m 07s} (current),
                 357.8439d {+23h 51m 23s} (1950)
GRB_DEC:         +65.9418d {+65d 56' 30"} (J2000),
                 +65.9699d {+65d 58' 12"} (current),
                 +65.6635d {+65d 39' 49"} (1950)

The XRT positions are not yet fully calibrated, and we estimate an uncertainty
of 30 arcseconds in these coordinates.  The XRT prompt image confirms that a
point source is located at this position.  A check of SIMBAD shows no bright
X-ray sources in this location.  Further information, including an XRT
lightcurve and spectrum, will be available in a few hours.

on behalf of the Swift-BAT team:

At 12:52:36 UT, the Swift Burst Alert Telescope (BAT) triggered and
located on-board GRB050117.  The spacecraft autonomously slewed
to the burst for the first time with a real GRB.

The BAT on-board calculated location is RA,Dec 358.427,+65.945 (J2000)
with an uncertainty of 4 arcmin (radius, 3-sigma, including a systematic
uncertainty).  This is within 55 arcsec of the XRT position (Burrows et al.,
GCN Circ 2951).  This burst occurred while Swift was near the SAA.
The lightcurve is multi-peaked with a duration of ~200 sec.  We note that
the XRT was on target during the later portion of the gamma-ray phase
of the burst.

SUBJECT: GRB050117: Refined XRT position
DATE:    05/01/17 18:09:23 GMT
FROM:    David Burrows at PSU/Swift  <burrows@astro.psu.edu>

J. E. Hill, J. A. Kennea, D. C. Morris, D. N. Burrows (PSU), A. A. Wells, J. P.
Osborne (U. Leicester), G. Tagliaferri (OAB), M. Ivanushkina, S. Hunsberger, J.
A. Nousek, P. Roming (PSU), P. Schady (MSSL), S. Barthelmy, F. Marshall and N.
Gehrels (NASA/GSFC) report on behalf of the Swift XRT team:

We have derived a refined Swift XRT position for GRB050117, based on preliminary
alignment corrections to the raw position reported in Burrows et al. (GCN 2951).

The refined XRT position is:
RA(J2000) = 358.47067 = 23h 53m 53.0s
Dec(J2000) = +65.93882 = +65:56:20

The estimated uncertainty in this position is 15 arcseconds (radius).

This is the first time that the Swift observatory has executed a prompt slew to
a GRB, and the XRT position was measured 192 seconds after the burst occurred.
Because the burst was quite long, the first XRT data were collected before the
burst ended, a first for a focussed X-ray GRB/afterglow observation.  We note
that the XRT in-flight calibration program has not yet begun because the Swift
observatory is still in its commissioning phase.

The burst occurred at 12:52:36 UT (Sakamoto et al., GCN 2952) just before Swift
entered the South Atlantic Anomaly (SAA) and while the burst location was
within the Swift Earth limb constraint.  The Swift spacecraft began slewing to
the burst at 12:54:38 UT, while in the SAA.  The XRT imaged the source
immediately after the slew ended, at 12:55:48.64 UT.  The source was very
bright, resulting in a successful centroid on the first 0.1s Image Mode
exposure. The XRT then collected a partial Photodiode Mode frame and stopped
data collection because it was in the SAA.  Although we have not yet calibrated
fluxes measured in XRT's Image Mode, the X-ray source intensity in the Image
Mode frame appears to be comparable to Cyg X-2, which puts it at roughly 1/2
Crab (based on RXTE ASM data on Cyg X-2 and the Crab).

The source is located just outside the zero-visibility region around the Swift
orbit pole and has only short periods of visibility on each orbit.  Most of
these visible periods occur while Swift is in the SAA, which limits the
amount of time when the source can be viewed by the XRT.  Automated observations
will proceed for the rest of 2005 Jan 17 when the source is visible.  We expect
to obtain a total observing time of about 15 minutes, spread out between 12:55
UT and 19:29 UT.  Because of orbital precession, the source will not be visible
again by the Swift XRT until 2005 Jan 21.

K. Torii (Osaka University) reports:

 The error region of SWIFT GRB 050117 (Burrows, et al. GCN 2951;
Sakamoto, et al. GCN 2952) was observed with the 14-inch ART at Osaka
University. The observation started at 2005 January 17, 14:05 UT and a
sequence of 60-s exposures in B, V, Rc, and Ic was repeated.

 We note that Galactic extinction is severe in the burst direction
(E(B-V) = 1.7 or A_R = 4.6 according to Schlegel, et al. 1998) and
compared our stacked Ic-band frame (60-s x 10 frames, mean epoch 14:38
UT) with the USNO-A2.0 (R) magnitude. As a result of the preliminary
analysis, no new source brighter than about 17.5 mag is identified
within the refined XRT error region (Hill, et al. GCN 2955).

report:

The refined SWIFT/XRT error box (Hill et al. GCN 2955) 
for GRB 050117 (Sakamoto et al. GCN 2952) has been 
observed with the 1.5 m telescope at the Observatorio 
de Sierra Nevada in Granada, southern Spain. I-band 
(6 x 300 s) images were acquired starting on 17 Jan, 
18:30 UT (i.e. about 5.6 hr after the GRB trigger). 
No new sources within the error box are found when 
comparing with the DSS-2 plates down to I = 20.5 . 
Near-IR images -specially in the K-band- would be 
required in order to indentify the afterglow at these 
wavelengths, as there is severe extinction in the line 
of sight (A_I = 3.40; A_K = 0.65). This has been also 
pointed out by Torii (GCN 2956).

Synchronicity with Almathea and Zeus

GRB050117 is another sign from Heaven (Nut) telling us that the path to Heavenly Delights is the True Witness. She rides the Wind Horse and the Eagle for the sake of Love and Reason. There is no mystery when the vessel of disparate emotions is emptied of the bull headedness from the past. In simple terms, we cannot be free if we allow our emotions to rip us apart or bind us with "bottled up experiences."

GRB050117 means Zeus is now in a Free State,

Heaven can wait. Can you?

IRAQ VOTES


Note the triangle drawn by gamma ray burst from Soft Gamma Repeater 1900+14 of August 28, 1998 at Etana and the gamma ray burst from GRB050117 of January 17, 2005 and the Vernal Equinox when the Madonna and Child clothed the face of the Sun as the Sun entered Capricorn on January 19, 2005. The near perfect equilateral triangle when flipped diagonally draws the Seal of Solomon on the ancient celestial Temple of Solomon. From the Vernal Equinox apex the beast of Al Baraq rises to the diagonal between Etana and the King of Kings. In the midst of this diagonal is the Northern Cross, and the Swan of Zeus. In 328 BC, Alexander the Great destroyed the Persian Empire and attempted to establish the Hellenistic world of Zeus. Then, in 35 BC, the Roman empire was driven back into tyranny. In 320 AD, Constantine took the Roman Empire out of Tyranny and into the Byzantine Empire where the emperor was again seen as the Son of God, as opposed to the One and Only God. In 621 AD, the men of Ur acknowledge the journey of Prophet Muhammad on the beast of Al Baraq with the magical images provided by Angel Gabriel. And, although there are Egyptian, Greek, and Christian signs all over the skies of Ancient Ur, this moment belongs to the Mesopotamian Gods. This is the moment that Muhammad saw in Jacob's dream.


All the legends derived since the Sumerians envisioned the coming of Nibiru became history on the day the men of Ur joined the table of the Son of God, and the women of Ur received the eagle's wings of Freedom. This is one more step in the journey of Gilgamesh, and all the heroes that came from the Word of God in Sebek's mouth, and the child of God in Quetzalcoatl's mouth (East and West). On January 30, 2005, Venus crossed the ancient River Styx, and Mercury entered the house of Almathea. At that moment the Sun warmed the waters of Neptune and Uranus gave strength to the arm of Aquarius. Mars empowered the strong leg of the Healer, while Saturn marked the time of the Two Brothers and Jupiter approached the womb of the Virgin.  On that great night that has taken 50,000 years to fulfill, the Moon honored the reflection on the dream of the Great Mother, who clearly stated in this vote that the Wonder in Heaven (Earth) travails in birth. Regardless of any consequences for their courage, what the modern children of Sumer have said has been written in the heavens since man first dreamed that conformity in human civilization could survive against the odds in human barbarianism. Love and wisdom were born again at the birthplace of civilization when the courageous people of Ancient Ur defied death threats to say,

"I am somebody, hear my voice!"
