Lina Tomasella report/s a classification of object: SN 2016flu

Type: SN Ia
Redshift: 0.034

Remarks: The best match is with the Type Ia SNe 2003du and 2003kf about one week before B-band maximum light. Using the redshift 0.034 (suggested by SNID), from the position of the minimum of the Si II 635nm feature, we infer an expansion velocity of ~12600 km/s for the ejected material.
