The Nordic Optical Telescope (NOT) Unbiased Transient Survey (NUTS; ATel #8992) reports the spectroscopic classification of Gaia17dkc / SN2017jfo in host galaxy SDSS J013336.84+332552.0. The candidate was discovered by the Gaia Alerts project.

The observation was performed with the 2.56 m Nordic Optical Telescope equipped with ALFOSC (range 350-950 nm; resolution 1.6 nm FWHM).

Survey Name  | IAU Name   | Discovery (UT) | Discovery mag | Observation (UT) | Redshift | Type | Phase   | Notes  
Gaia17dkc    | SN2017jfo  | 2017-12-26.6   | 18.5          | 2017-12-31.9     | 0.08     | Ia   | +0d     |  

Classification was performed using the GELATO (Harutyunyan et al. 2008, A&A, 488, 383) and SNID (Blondin and Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024) tools. Calibrated spectra and additional information can be retrieved in the IAU Transient Name Server.
