The Asiago Transient Classification Program (Tomasella et al. 2014, AN, 335, 841) reports the spectroscopic classification of PSN J13480490+6149153 in the galaxy UGC 8734 discovered by E. Briggs, D. Post, Jack Newton, and Tim Puckett. Informations on these transients are also available from the "Bright Supernova" website (http://www.rochesterastronomy.org/snimages/) and the CBAT Transient Object Followup Reports (http://www.cbat.eps.harvard.edu/index.html). The observations were performed with the Asiago 1.82 m Copernico Telescope (+AFOSC; range 340-820 nm; resolution 1.4 nm).

Name                         | Discovery      | z       |   Type   | Observation date |  Phase      | Notes  
PSN J13480490+6149153        | 2015-07-02.240 | 0.031   |   Ia     | 2015-08-12.8     |  ~5 weeks   | (1)      

(1) Best match with the normal Ia SN 2013du. Also a very good match with the 91T-like SN 1999aa.

Classifications were done with SNID (Blondin and Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024). The Asiago classification spectra are posted at the website http://sngroup.oapd.inaf.it.
