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 classification. The target was supplied by 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 observations were performed on the ESO New Technology Telescope at La Silla on 2018 April 8 UT, 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). The classification spectrum and additional details can be obtained from http://www.pessto.org (via WISeREP) and the IAU Transient Name Server.
Survey Name | IAU Name | RA (J2000) | Dec (J2000) | Disc. Date | Source | Disc. Mag | z | Type | Phase | Notes
ASASSN-18hh | SN2018are | 13 49 26.87 | 26 27 42.9 | 2018 04 05 | ASAS-SN | 18.30 | 0.08 | Ia-91T | -7 to -4 | (1)
(1) We get a good match with a SN type Ia-91T and estimate the phase to be within -7 to -4 days.
