Daichi Hiramatsu, Iair Arcavi, Jamison Burke, Griffin Hosseinzadeh, D. Andrew Howell, Curtis McCully, Stefano Valenti report/s a classification of object: SN 2018bsz

Type: SN II
Redshift: 0.026665

Remarks: Using Superfit (Howell et al. 2005, ApJ, 634, 1190) and SNID (Blondin & Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024), we find good fits to several young Type II supernovae around the redshift of the proposed host galaxy (z=0.026665; 6dF DR4, via NED).
