Type: SN II
Redshift: 0.042335

Remarks: An optical spectrum of SN 2020dbd, obtained on the night of 2020 February 24 with the ESO Very Large Telescope UT1 equipped with the FORS2 spectrograph and grism 300V, shows a blue continuum with indications of broad P-cygni features of H-alpha and He I 5876, indicative of a young Type II supernova. From the photometric constraints, we estimate a phase about 6d after explosion.
