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 DPAC and the Photometric Science Alerts
Team of ESA Gaia (http://gsaweb.ast.cam.ac.uk/alerts), and CRTS (Drake et al. 2009, 696, 870 ; http://crts.caltech.edu/ )."
All observations were performed on the ESO New Technology Telescope
at La Silla on 2016 09 06, using EFOSC2 and Grism 13 (3985-9315A, 18A resolution).
Classifications were done with SNID (Blondin & Tonry, 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024) and GELATO (Harutyunyan et al.,
2008, A&A, 488, 383). Classification spectra and additional details can be obtained
from http://www.pessto.org (via WISeREP) and the IAU Transient Name Server.
Redshifts reported to more than 2 significant figures are from host galaxy emission lines, otherwise are estimated from the transient object features.

(1) 24 arcsec (or 16kpc) from most likely host elliptical galaxy NGC888, z=0.029190
(2) Near GALEXASC J140251.91-303700.7, which is extended blue source in Pan-STARRS1 3Pi image stack
(3) Spectrum similar to IIn/Ia-CSM SN2005gj at +23d, 1 arcsec offset from faint host SDSS J230721.53+025428.2, r=20.6 (not submitted to the IAU TNS)
(4) Featureless blue continuum. Emission line at H-alpha, at zero redshift. No host object in the Pan-STARRS 3Pi stack. Galactic variable, probable CV.
