Jamison Burke, Iair Arcavi, Daichi Hiramatsu, D. Andrew Howell, Curtis McCully, Craig Pellegrino report/s a classification of object: SN 2019nvh

Type: SN Ia
Redshift: 0.115759

Remarks: Using Superfit (Howell et al. 2005, ApJ, 634, 1190) and SNID (Blondin & Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024), we find several good fits to normal SNe Ia approximately two weeks after max. The redshift range reported in the fits is consistent with the NED value of the redshift for the probable host (2MASS J15503740+2302488; z = 0.115759). Assuming this redshift and distance modulus, the peak g-band absolute magnitude in the ZTF lightcurve is approximately -19.3. The absolute magnitude and the epoch of the spectrum are consistent with a post-max SN Ia.

The following Classification spectrum was provided:
