We report the discovery and subsequent multiwavelength afterglow behaviour of the highredshift (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 T 90 = 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.
