This report includes classifications of three Type Ia's, two Type II's, one CV and AT2019oop which shows blue and featureless continuum which suggest core-collapse SN. AT2019oqq, AT2019onu and AT2019ovn were not visible on acquisition image.

ePESSTO+, the advanced 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 ATLAS survey (Tonry et al. 2018 2018PASP..130f4505T), the Zwicky Transient Facility ZTF (Kulkarni 2018 2018ATel11266....1K) - data stream processed through the Lasair broker (Smith, Williams, Young et al. 2019 2019RNAAS...3a..26S) and the All Sky Automated Survey for SuperNovae ASAS-SN (see Shappee et al. 2014 2014ApJ...788...48S and

Observations were performed on the ESO New Technology Telescope (NTT) at La Silla on the night of 2019 August 28, 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) and Superfit (Howell et al. 2005 2005ApJ...634.1190H).

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.
