GRB 080319B was a very bright gamma‐ray burst with a total isotropic energy It was also distinguished by the strong prompt optical emission with a peak magnitude In this work we interpret the prompt optical (soft γ—ray) emission as the synchrotron (synchrotron self‐Compton) radiation of internal shocks at a rather large radius In this model, the GRB outflow is baryonic rather than Poynting‐flux dominated. The 2nd‐order Inverse Compton radiation of the internal shocks may have not been effectively suppressed and a GeV‐TeV flare as energetic as the keV—MeV emission is plausible, which is detectable by a satellite like GLAST or AGILE.
