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

Type: SN Ia
Redshift: 0.019

Remarks: Using SNID (Blondin & Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024), we find good fits to several Type Ia supernovae, both normal and 91T-like, at the redshift of the proposed host galaxy (z=0.019; Jones et al. 2009, "The 6dF Galaxy Survey Data Release 3," via NED). The spectrum is relatively red, probably due to significant host extinction.

The following Classification spectrum was provided:
