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 classifications. Targets were supplied by the ATLAS survey, see Tonry et al. (2011, PASP, 123, 58) and Tonry et al. (ATel #8680). All observations were performed on the ESO New Technology Telescope at La Silla on 2016 November 05, using EFOSC2 and Grism 13 (3985-9315A, 18A resolution). The classification was done with SNID (Blondin & Tonry, 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024). Classification spectrum and additional details can be obtained from http://www.pessto.org (via WISeREP) and the IAU Transient Name Server.

(1) Host galaxy redshift taken from NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database (NED). At this redshift, the projected SN distance to the host (UGC 03524) is 7.07 kpc. The SN is similar to SN 1999aa. Follow-up observations are encouraged.
