J. Prieto, T. W.-S., Holoien, D. Godoy report/s a classification of object: SN 2016bmc

Type: SN Ia
Redshift: 0.028016

Remarks: The spectrum of ASASSN-16ej/AT2016bmc is that of a normal Type Ia SN before maximum light. Cross-correlation with a library of supernova spectra using the "Supernova Identification" code (SNID; Blondin & Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024) shows that the best match is SN2013ic at -4 days. After correcting the spectrum for the redshift of the host galaxy, we measure a Si II 635.5nm expansion velocity of 10400 km/s.

The following Classification spectrum was provided:
