Abstract: We report the discovery and subsequent multiwavelength afterglow behaviour of the high-redshift (z= 4.27) Gamma Ray Burst (GRB) 050505. This burst is the third most-distant burst, measured by spectroscopic redshift, discovered after GRB 000131 (z= 4.50) and GRB 050904 (z= 6.29). GRB 050505 is a long GRB with a multipeaked γ-ray light curve, with a duration of T90= 63 ± 2 s and an inferred isotropic release in γ-rays of ~4.44 × 10(53) erg in the 1–10(4) keV rest-frame energy range.
