   GRB (Gamma-Ray Burst)= GB = (GRBS) = (SHB) Write:<<GRB YYMMDDA>>
<<GRB YYMMDDa>> (not recognised by Simbad, but found in literature) Object:(Gamma)  (SIMBAD class: gammaBurst = gamma-ray Burst) Note:Systematic designation.
The authors use 2 formats: 'YYMMDDA' or 'YYYY MMM DDA' for Year, Month and Day. A letter is added when several events have occured on the same day, the letter 'A' to the brightest burst. Only the first two references are given here:
