AGILE observations of the gravitational wave event GW170104

The LIGO/Virgo Collaboration (LVC) detected on January 4th, 2017 a significant gravitational wave (GW) event, named GW1740104. AGILE observed the field containing GW170104 with good coverage and significant gamma-ray exposure of its localization region. A refined analysis of AGILE MCAL data shows the existence of a weak event, occurring 0.46 sec before LIGO detection and lasting about 30 ms, that might be associated with GW170104. This event is interesting and worth of additional investigation and search for possible coincident detections by other space instruments.
