ePESSTO, the extended Public ESO Spectroscopic Survey for Transient Objects (see Smartt et al. 2015, A&A, 579, 40 http://www.pessto.org ), reports the following supernova classifications. Targets were supplied by Pan-STARRS Survey for Transients (see Chambers et al. 2016, arXiv:1612.05560, and http://pswww.ifa.hawaii.edu ), 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 D<40 Mpc (DLT40) one day cadence SN search (http://dark.physics.ucdavis.edu/dlt40/DLT40), and the ESA Gaia Photometric Science Alerts Team and DPAC (http://gsaweb.ast.cam.ac.uk/alerts). All observations were performed on the ESO New Technology Telescope at La Silla on 2017 08 16, using EFOSC2 and Grism 13 (3985-9315A, 18A resolution). Classifications were done with SNID (Blondin & Tonry, 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024) and GELATO (Harutyunyan et al., 2008, A&A, 488, 383). Classification spectra and additional details can be obtained from http://www.pessto.org (via WISeREP) and the IAU Transient Name Server.

(1) Redshift from host galaxy
(2) Low S/N spectrum
(3) Blue continuum transient. Offset from nearby spiral ESO 490-G 044 by ~1.9 arc minutes
but this is likely chance coincidence as there is a faint source in the Pan-STARRS1 images
at the transient position. Absorption lines match the SLSN SN2010gx (Pastorello et al. 2010), at z = 0.09. Further data will be taken to confirm
(4) Blue, featureless continuum
