S. Taubenberger, C. Vogl, A. Floers, W. Hillebrandt, S. Suyu (MPA Garching), S. J. Smartt, M. Dobson (QUB), R. Kotak (Turku), R. Bruch, A. Gal-Yam (Weizmann), J. Spyromilio, B. Leibundgut (ESO) report/s a classification of object: SN 2019tjt

Type: SN II
Redshift: 0.0476

Remarks: The spectrum shows a relatively featureless, blue continuum with broad He II emission superimposed, characteristic of a young Type II supernova. A weak, narrow He II emission line is also detected, suggesting long-lasting flash ionisation of a surrounding CSM. The appearance of the spectrum is consistent with the phase of 7d after explosion estimated from the ZTF and ATLAS light curves. At an absolute magnitude of -18.4 as inferred from our V-band acquisition image, the SN is very bright for a SN II.
