Antonio de Ugarte Postigo (HETH/IAA-CSIC, DARK/NBI), Luca Izzo (HETH/IAA-CSIC), D.A. Kann (HETH/IAA-CSIC), C.C. Thoene (HETH/IAA report/s a classification of object: SN 2017iuk

Type: SN Ic-BL
Redshift: 0.0368

Remarks: The spectrum shows broad undulated spectral features, which are prominent between 4000 and 6000 Angstrom, superposed to the afterglow continuum, which indicates the emergence of a supernova component. The features include a double bump in this range, similar to what was seen for the very early spectra of SN 1998bw (Patat et al. 2001), implying that this is also a broad line Ic supernova.
