PESSTO, the Public ESO Spectroscopic Survey for Transient Objects (see Smartt et al. 2015, A&A, 579, 40 http://www.pessto.org ), reports the following supernova classifications. Targets were supplied by Pan-STARRS Survey for Transients (see Huber et al., ATel #7153) and OGLE-IV Real-time Transient Search (Wyrzykowski et al., 2014 arxiv:1409.1095; http://ogle.astrouw.edu.pl/ ) (see below). All observations were performed on the ESO New Technology Telescope at La Silla on 2015 Nov. 7, using EFOSC2 and Grism 13 (3985-9315Å, 18Å resolution). Classifications were done with SNID (Blondin & Tonry, 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024) and GELATO (Harutyunyan et al., 2008, A&A, 488, 383). Classification spectra can be obtained from http://www.pessto.org (via WISeREP).

(1) Blue continuum with broad H and He emission lines; consistent with a young type II SN. Matches SN 2005cs at 2 d before maximum.
(2) Normal Ia around a week after maximum.
(3) Best matches to Ia around a month after maximum. Some host galaxy contamination. Redshift from narrow host galaxy H alpha line.
