Griffin Hosseinzadeh, Iair Arcavi, Stefano Valenti, D. Andrew Howell, Curtis McCully report/s a classification of object: SN 2016bev

Type: SN II
Redshift: 0.011

Remarks: The spectrum has very low signal-to-noise due to moon brightness, but a broad H-alpha P Cygni feature is visible at the redshift of the proposed host galaxy (z=0.011; Takata et al. 1994, A&AS, 104, 529, via NED). We therefore classify it as a Type II supernova.

The following Classification spectrum was provided:
