Abstract

We investigated serendipitous INTEGRAL observations carried out at the time of the LIGO/Virgo burst candidate G297595. The satellite was pointing at RA=240.554 Dec=-55.181, far from the high-probability area of LIGO localization. For the full LIGO 90% confidence region the best upper limit is set by the anti-coincidence shield of the spectrometeron board of INTEGRAL (SPI/ACS). The localization of G297595 is close to optimal for SPI-ACS observation.
