M. K. Seidel, N. Morrell, Benjamin J. Shappee report/s a classification of object: SN 2016jdv

Type: SN Ia
Redshift: 0.026934

The following Classification spectrum was provided:

Obsdate: 2016-12-30 08:38:24
Instrument: WFCCD
Telescope: Las Campanas Observatory du Pont telescope

Remarks: We report optical spectroscopic observation of supernova candidate ASASSN-16pl (ATel #9918, AT 2016jdv) using the du Pont 2.5-m telescope (+ WFCCD) at Las Campanas Observatory on UT 2016-12-30.36. The target was discovered by the All-Sky Automated Survey for Supernovae (ASAS-SN; Shappee et al. 2014, ApJ, 788, 48). We used SNID (Blondin & Tonry, 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024) to identify the type and phase of the SN spectra. The spectrum matches with SNe Ia-norm, around maximum light. SNID estimates the redshift to be z=0.029.
