ePESSTO+, the extended Public ESO Spectroscopic Survey for Transient Objects (Smartt et al. 2015 2015A&A...579A..40S), reports the following supernova classifications.

Targets were supplied by the All Sky Automated Survey for SuperNovae ASAS-SN (see Shappee et al. 2014 2014ApJ...788...48S).

Observations were performed on the ESO New Technology Telescope (NTT) at La Silla on 2019 May 11 (UTC), using EFOSC2 and Grism 13 (3985-9315A, 18A resolution). Classifications were done using SNID (Blondin & Tonry 2007 2007ApJ...666.1024B) and GELATO (Harutyunyan et al. 2008 2008A&A...488..383H).

The classification spectra and additional details can be obtained from (via WISeREP) and the IAU Transient Name Server.

The classified objects are listed in the Related Objects table below.
