The Asiago Transient Classification Program (Tomasella et al. 2014, AN, 335, 841) reports the spectroscopic classification
of ASASSN-16bp ( = AT 2016adq), discovered by All Sky Automated Survey for SuperNovae ASAS-SN
(see Shappee et al. 2014, ApJ, 788, 48 and http://www.astronomy.ohio-state.edu/~assassin/index.shtml ), in CGCG 336-041 (Atel #8666)
The observation was performed with the Asiago 1.82 m Copernico Telescope (+AFOSC; range 340-820 nm; resolution 1.4 nm).
Name | Discovery UT | Obs. Date UT |z | Type | Phase |Notes
ASASSN-16bp | 20160209.61 | 20160211.11 |0.034194 | Ia | ~10d | (1)
(1) Also known as SN2016adq in CGCG 336-041 (z=0.034194, d=145 Mpc, via NED).
The expansion velocity as deduced from the Si-II 635.5nm is about 10200 km/s.
Classification was done with GELATO (Harutyunyan et al. 2008, A&A, 488,
383) and SNID (Blondin and Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024). The Asiago classification
