Yuxin Xin, Jujia Zhang report/s a classification of object: SN 2016H

Type: SN Ia
Redshift: 0.046

Remarks: ATEL #8534 We report an optical spectrum (range 350-900 nm) of PS16fa = AT 2016H obtained on UT 2016 Jan. 11.9 with the 2.4 m telescope (+YFOSC) at Lijiang observatory of Yunnan Observatories. The spectrum is consistent with a Type Ia supernova at around maximum light. Cross-correlation with a library of supernova spectra using the "Supernova Identification" code (SNID; Blondin and Tonry 2007, ApJ. 666, 1024) shows that it matches with SN 1995E at t = +1 days. Adopting a redshift of 0.046 for its host galaxy SDSS J101917.64+044543.9, an expansion velocity of about 10,500 km/s can be derived from the absorption minimum of Si II 635.5 nm.

The following Classification spectrum was provided:
