PESSTO, the Public ESO Spectroscopic Survey for Transient Objects (see Smartt et al. 2015, A&A, 579, 40 http://www.pessto.org ),
reports the following supernova classification.
The target was supplied by the All Sky Automated Survey
for SuperNovae ASAS-SN (see Shappee et al. 2014, ApJ, 788, 48 and http://www.astronomy.ohio-state.edu/~assassin/index.shtml ).
The observation was performed on the ESO New Technology Telescope
at La Silla on 2017 February 18, using EFOSC2 and Grism 13 (3985-9315A, 18A resolution).
The classification was done with SNID (Blondin & Tonry, 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024) and GELATO (Harutyunyan et al.,
2008, A&A, 488, 383). The classification spectrum and additional details can be obtained
from http://www.pessto.org (via WISeREP) and the IAU Transient Name Server.
Survey Name | IAU Name | RA (J2000) | Dec (J2000) | Disc. Date | Source | Disc Mag | z | Type | Phase | Notes
ASASSN-17cm | SN2017aut | 05 47 42.40 | -79 12 51.4 | 20170214 | ASASSN | 16.4 | 0.0172 | Ia | +8 to +10 d | (1)
(1) Several good matches to SNe Ia at +8 to +10 days. This phase is not consistent with the last non-detection reported in the discovery ATel #10084.
