This report includes classifications of 5 Type Ia's, a superluminous supernova, and a tidal disruption event. The TDE appears to have a fast rise and was discovered before peak. Swift follow-up observations have been approved.

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 Zwicky Transient Facility ZTF (Bellm et al. 2019 2019PASP..131a8002B) - data stream processed through the Lasair broker (Smith, Williams, Young et al. 2019 2019RNAAS...3a..26S).

Observations were performed on the ESO New Technology Telescope (NTT) at La Silla on the night of 2020 November 16, 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.
