We report the following classifications of optical transients from spectroscopic observations with the Kast spectrograph on the Shane telescope. Targets were supplied by ASAS-SN and ATLAS. All observations were made on 2017 Nov 22 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 an Si II 6355 velocity of -9,600 km/s. We also detect Na D lines with EW = 1.5 A at the host-galaxy redshift and EW = 2.0 A at z = 0. (2) We measure an Si II 6355 velocity of -10,700 km/s. (3) We measure an Si II 6355 velocity of -11,500 km/s. (4) We measure an Si II 6355 velocity of -9,800 km/s. We also detect Na D lines with EW = 2.3 A at the host-galaxy redshift and EW = 2.2 A at z = 0.
