J. Fynbo, M. Stritzinger, Subo Dong, A. Grosch, F. L. Guttesen, C. P. Knudsen, K. Loeve, and K. S. Nielsen report/s a classification of object: SN 2018fcw

Type: SN Ia
Redshift: 0.055

Remarks: Inspection of the spectrum indicates this is a Type-Ia supernova at or around maximum light. Comparison to a library of template supernovae spectra using SNID (Blondin and Tonry 2007) reveals good mataches with the normal SN 2006ax and SN 2007F a few days before maximum light. SNID computes a host redshift of z=0.055.
