The Asiago Transient Classification Program (Tomasella et al. 2014, AN, 335, 841) reports the spectroscopic classification
of ASASSN-16bn (also known as SN 2016adn), discovered by the All Sky Automated Survey for SuperNOvae (ASAS-SN) in
The observation was performed with the Asiago 1.82 m Copernico Telescope (+AFOSC; range 340-820 nm; resolution 1.4 nm),
remotely controlled from the Padova Observatory.

ASASSN-16bn |20160209.24 | 20160211.73 |0.023166 | Ia | around max | (1)
(1) This is a type Ia SN around the maximum light, in agreement with the classification reported in Atel #8674 and #8680. A good match is found with SN 2003du, 2 days after maximum.
From the position of the minimum of the broad Si II 635.5 nm absorption, we obtain an expansion velocity of about
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
