The Asiago Transient Classification Program (Tomasella et
al. 2014, AN, 335, 841) reports the spectroscopic observation of
MASTER OT J194310.37+554900.0 (Atel #9389), ASASSN-16je (aka
SN2016fez) near galaxy 2MASX J17055033+6950555 and AT2016fee (aka
Gaia16bbt) in the faint galaxy SDSS J233345.91+253350.7.
The observations were performed with the Asiago 1.82 m Copernico
Telescope equipped with AFOSC (range 340-820 nm; resolution 1.4 nm).

(1) The spectrum shows strong blue continuum and emission lines, at
zero redshift, typical of a dwarf nova following an outburst (Szkody
et al. 1990 ApJS, 73, 537; Liu et al. 1999, ApJSS 122,
243). Absorption throughs from an optically thick disk are coupled with
emissions of hydrogen Balmer lines, as well as He I 447.1 nm,
587.6 nm, 667.8 nm and 706.5 nm.
A good match is obtained with Type Ia SNe about one week after
B-band maximum light at a redshift z~0.037.
Assuming this redshift, from the position of the minimum of the Si
II 635nm feature, we infer an expansion velocity of 10700 km/s for
the ejected material.
(3) The low signal-to-noise spectrum shows a featureless, blue
continuum. The host galaxy SDSS J233345.91+253350.7 has a
photoZ=0.105+/-0.061 (SDSS DR13).
Classifications were done with GELATO (Harutyunyan et al. 2008, A&A,
488, 383) and SNID (Blondin and Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024). The
