We report two spectroscopic classifications using near-infrared spectra (range 800-2400 nm) obtained with the FoldedPort Infrared Echellette (FIRE) spectrograph on the 6.5-m Magellan Baade Telescope.
Name | Source | z | Type | Phase | Spec date | Notes
SNhunt224 | SNhunt | 0.019 | Ia | +8d | Dec 27.06 | 1
CSS131225:030144-092044 | CSS | 0.04 | Ia | -2d | Dec 27.13 | 2
1) Also known as PSN J01585369+0535254. Similar to SN2011fe at 8d (Hsiao et al. 2013). Redshift from presumed host, UGC 01461. Also classified in ATEL #5700.
2) Similar to SN2012ar at -2d (CBET 3041). Redshift from supernova feature. Also classified in ATEL #5700.
