Transient events in the COBE database simultaneous with gamma ray bursts
We are investigating the COBE DMR data at instances of known γ-ray bursts (GRBs) when any of the six DMR horn directions was coincident with the direction of a burst. The BATSE instrument on board GRO has detected 207 bursts during the eight-month period of overlap corresponding to the current release of COBE data. The odds of a GRB occurring within the DMR field of view are near one coincidence per year. Here we report on one such serendipitous observation in 1991, GRB 911226, for which a detailed analysis is currently in progress. © 1995 Kluwer Academic Publishers.
