The Nearby Supernova Factory reports that a spectrum (range 320-1000 nm) of SN 2005dj (IAUC# 8585 ), obtained August 19.6 UT with the Supernova Integral Field Spectrograph on the University of Hawaii 2.2-meter telescope, reveals P-Cygni H-alpha and H-beta, indicative of a Type II supernova. The observed redshift is consistent with that of the host UGC 3545 (z = 0.011508, Huchtmeier & Skillman 1998 via NED). Using this value, we measure absorption the minima of these two features at 8000 km/s.
