We report the following classifications of optical transients from spectroscopic observations with the Kast spectrograph on the Shane 3-m telescope. Targets were supplied by ATLAS. Observations were made on 2017 June 1 UT. Classifications were performed with SNID (Blondin & Tonry, 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024).

 
Name        | IAU Name  | RA (J2000)  | Dec (J2000)  | z     | Type | Phase | Notes
ATLAS17fml | AT2017edj | 12:44:14.87 | +48:35:21.55 | 0.031 | Ia | +5d | (1) ATLAS17fop | AT2017eea | 12:23:54.19 | +09:07:27.81 | 0.06 | Ia | -2d |

Notes: When the redshift is given to 2 decimal places, it is derived from the SN spectrum. Otherwise, the redshift is determined from the host galaxy.

(1) We measure a Si II 6355 velocity of -11,400 km/s.
