The Nearby Supernova Factory reports that a spectrum (range 320-1000 nm) of supernova SN2005gl (IAUC # 8615 ), obtained Oct 13.5 UT with the Supernova Integral Field Spectrograph (SNIFS) on the University of Hawaii 2.2-meter telescope, shows it to be a Type IIn supernova at a redshift of z = 0.016, consistent with that of the host NGC 266 (Huchra et al. 1999 ApJS, 121, 287 via NED). The Nearby Supernova Factory also reports that a spectrum (range 320-1000 nm) of supernova SN2005gm (IAUC # 8616 ), obtained Oct 13.5 UT with SNIFS reveals that it is a Type II supernova at an approximate redshift of z = 0.02, consistent with that of the host NGC 1423 (Theureau et al. 2005 A&A, 430, 373 via NED). The spectrum is well-developed, exhibiting H-alpha, He I 5876 features, and Ca II IR triplet in emission.
