Spectra (range 350-760 nm) of ASASSN-15ba was obtained on Jan 15, 2015 UT with the F. L. Whipple Observatory 1.5-m telescope (+ FAST). Cross-correlation with a library of supernova spectra using the "Supernova Identification" code (SNID; Blondin and Tonry 2007, Ap.J. 666, 1024) shows ASASSN-15ba is a Normal Ia at a phase of -5 days before maximum brightness.
