S. Dong (KIAA), D. Bersier (LJMU), J. L. Prieto (UDP) report/s a classification of object: SN 2017hcc

Type: SN IIn
Redshift: 0.0173

Remarks: We obtained an optical spectrum of AT2017hcc on 2017 October 7.4 with FLOYDS mounted on the FTS 2m at the Siding Spring Observatory. The spectrum shows a relatively blue continuum with one strong, resolved emission line at 6676.3 Angstrom with FWHM~44 Angstrom (~2000 km/s). Assuming that this line is likely Halpha, then AT2017hcc is likely a Type IIn SN at z=0.0173.
