Saurabh Jha report/s a classification of object: SN 2016gcr

Type: SN Ia
Redshift: 0.065

Remarks: Cross-correlation of the spectrum with a supernova template library using SNID (Blondin & Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024) shows PS16eho is a type-Ia supernova approximately two weeks past maximum light. A good SNID match is obtained with SN 2005hf at +12 days. SNID matches to post-maximum SN Ic spectra are plausible, but not as compelling.

The following Classification spectrum was provided:

Obsdate: 2016-09-12 00:37:36
Instrument: RSS
Telescope: Southern African Large Telescope

Remarks: Significant host-galaxy contamination (host+SN was extracted).
