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

Type: SN Ia

Remarks: Using SNID (Blondin & Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024), we find a good fit to the several normal Type Ia supernovae around a week before maximum light at redshifts consistent with that of the proposed host galaxy (z=0.005; de Vaucouleurs et al. 1991, Third Reference Catalogue of Bright Galaxies, version 3.9, via NED).
