Sebastian Gomez, Peter Blanchard, Matt Nicholl, Edo Berger report/s a classification of object: SN 2016iet

Type: SN I
Redshift: 0.0676

Remarks: Spectrum taken with the IMACS spectrograph revealed strong calcium and oxygen features, weak Si features, and no evidence for H or He lines, which in principle leads to a Type Ic designation. However, this SN does not resemble any typical Type Ic SNe, and we, therefore, adopt a general classification of a Type I SN.

The following Classification spectrum was provided:
