We report the following classifications of optical transients from spectroscopic observations with the Goodman spectrograph on the SOAR 4-m telescope. Targets were supplied by the All-Sky Automated Survey for Supernovae (ASAS-SN), the ATLAS project (ATel #8680), and Gaia. Observations were made on 2017 June 21 UT. Classifications were performed with SNID (Blondin & Tonry, 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024).

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 -11,300 km/s.
(2) We measure a Si II 6355 velocity of -11,200 km/s.
(3) We measure an H-alpha velocity of -7500 km/s.
(4) Several matches similar to SN 1991T-like objects. We measure a Si II 6355 velocity of -10,200 km/s.
(5) We measure a Si II 6355 velocity of -10,200 km/s.
