We report the following classifications of optical transients from spectroscopic observations with the LRIS spectrograph on the Keck I telescope. Targets were supplied by the ALeRCE using the public ZTF stream, ASASSN and ATLAS. All observations were made on 2019 November 26 UT. Classifications were performed with SNID (Blondin & Tonry, 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024).
Name | IAU Name | RA (J2000) | Dec (J2000) | z | Type | Phase | Notes
ZTF19actldas | AT2019vdg | 06:23:31.94 | +50:23:59.95 | 0.04 | Ia | peak | (1)
ASASSN-19abq | AT2019vnj | 11:09:01.27 | -14:38:09.96 | 0.02 | Ia | -3d | (2)
ATLAS19bavv | AT2019voo | 12:19:42.52 | -12:13:32.16 | 0.013 | Ia | +25d |
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 -11,400 km/s. (2) We measure an Si II 6355 velocity of -11,300 km/s.
