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

Type: LBV
Redshift: 0.004953

Remarks: Using SNID (Blondin & Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024), we find good fits to several LBVs at the host redshift (0.004953; 1989ESOLV.C…0000L, via NED). The lack of SN-like broad features and fainter absolute magnitude support the LBV classification.
