Angel R. Lopez-Sanchez (AAO/Macquarie U.), Lluis Galbany (U. Pittsburgh), Yago Ascasibar (UAM), Kristin Fiegert (AAO) report/s a classification of object: SN 2018bwp

Type: SN Ia
Redshift: 0.065

Remarks: Classification was done with SNID (Blondin & Tonry, 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024).

The following Classification spectrum was provided:

Obsdate: 2018-05-23 13:46:00
Instrument: Other
Telescope: Other

Remarks: The spectrum shows typical broad features characteristic of type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) past-maximum light. SNID gives a relible fits to all its main spectral features with spectra of normal SNe Ia at 3-4 weeks after peak brightness placed at redshift consistent with that of the host galaxy (0.065). We measure a Si II 6355 velocity of -8,700 km/s.
