The Asiago Transient Classification Program (Tomasella et al. 2014, AN, 335, 841) reports the spectroscopic classification of Supernova Gaia14abz in SDSS 1237661435924644064
The observation was performed with the Asiago 1.82 m Copernico Telescope
(+AFOSC; range 340-820 nm; resolution 1.2 nm).
Name | Date (UT) | z | Type | Phase | Notes
Gaia14abz | 20141026.72 | 0.059 | Ia | at max | (1)
(1) host galaxy z from the SDSS
The transient Gaia14abz was detected by the Gaia Photometric Science Alerts programme with a magnitude of 18.7 at
UT 2014 Oct. 05.72 . BP and RP spectra indicated a likely SN.
The candidate was recovered at RA= 13:37:00.80, DEC= +46:57:40.5 (J2000), corresponding to an offset
with respect to the parent galaxy nucleus of 9".9 E 1".3 N.
Classification was done with GELATO (Harutyunyan et al. 2008, A&A, 488, 383) and SNID (Blondin and Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024).
