Fishman, Marshall Space Flight Center, NASA, report on behalf of the BATSE Team: "GRB 971227 (IAUC 6796, 6797) was recorded as BATSE trigger No. 6546. It was a weak, short event of duration about 6 s that exhibits two well distinguished peaks, separated by 2.5 s. The burst fluence (above 25 keV) was 9.3 (+/- 1.4) x 10E-7 erg cmE-2 and its peak flux (between 50 and 300 keV) was 3.3 +/- 0.2 photons cmE-2 sE-1. The burst was not detected above 300 keV."
