We report spectroscopic classification of two supernovae with the Wide Field Spectrograph (WiFeS - Dopita et al., 2007, ApSS, 310, 255) on the ANU 2.3m telescope at Siding Spring Observatory, NSW Australia, using the B3000/R3000 gratings (3500-9800 A, 1 A resolution). Discovery and classification information are found in the table below, the targets were observed on 2015 Aug 17, and classifications were made with SNID (Blondin & Tonry, 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024).
Name | RA (J2000) | Dec (J2000) | Disc. Date | Disc Mag | Disc. Source | SNID z | Type | Phase | Match SN | Notes
SMTJ13494831-0658174 | 13:49:48.31 | -06:58:17.4 | 20150728 | 18.7 (g) | SkyMapper | 0.075 | Ia | +12 | SN 2005cf | (1)
PSNJ19251269-5336028 | 19:25:12.69 | -53:36:02.8 | 20150810 | 18.5 | Parker (BOSS) | 0.054 | Ia | +48 | SN 2006le | (2)
(1) Consistent with redshift of the nearest potential host galaxy GALEXASC J134948.25-065820.9 (z=0.076933, Jones et al. 2009, 6dF Galaxy Survey).
(2) Not consistent with redshift of the nearest potential host galaxy PGC 63183 (distance 0.11 arcmin, z=0.036525, Fairall 1983, MNRAS, 203, 47) but possibly the more distant ESO 184- G 064 (distance 1.99 arcmin, z=0.058424, Donzelli & Pastoriza 1997, ApJS, 111, 181).
