Tomasella, Benetti, Cappellaro, Turatto report/s a classification of object: SN 2019rz

Type: SN IIn
Redshift: 0.018853

Remarks: The spectrum is dominated by a broad HeII 468.6 nm emission, while the strong Balmer lines are unresolved and likely contaminated by the host galaxy lines. The spectral features including the continuum are similar to those of SN 1998S few days after explosion, after allowing for a substantial reddening which is consistent with the presence of a strong NaID Galactic absorption (EW~0.6 nm). The redshift is from Theureau et al. 1998 A&AS, 130, 333 (via NED)
