Comments:

BAT: From the BAT spectrum, this event does not appear to be a short hard burst. The quickly fading X-ray lightcurve, however (to be reported in a later circular), does appear consistent with a SHB, and does not appear to be similar to the lightcurves of SGRs or other Galactic sources.
UVOT: no detection
