Griffin Hosseinzadeh, Brad Tucker, Iair Arcavi, D. Andrew Howell, Curtis McCully, Stefano Valenti report/s a classification of object: SN 2017fwa

Type: SN Ia
Redshift: 0.028

Remarks: Using Superfit (Howell et al. 2005, ApJ, 634, 1190), we find good fits to several normal Type Ia supernovae in the week after maximum light at the redshift of the proposed host galaxy (z=0.028; Loveday et al. 1996, ApJS, 107, 201 via NED), after accounting for host extinction of A<sub>V</sub> ~ 2 mag.

The following Classification spectrum was provided:
