The Nordic Optical Telescope (NOT) Un-biased Transient Survey (NUTS; ATel #8992) reports spectroscopic classification of Gaia17abx (AT 2017ij) located in host galaxy CGCG 136-006 NED02. The candidate was discovered by the Gaia Photometric Science Alerts.

The observation was performed with the 2.56 m Nordic Optical Telescope equipped with ALFOSC (range 350-950 nm; resolution 1.6 nm FWHM).

(1) Spectrum resembles normal SNe Ia. Redshift was derived from SN features, and consistent with narrow emission lines from the host.

Classification was performed using the GELATO (Harutyunyan et al. 2008, A&A, 488, 383) and SNID (Blondin and Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024) tools. Calibrated spectra and additional information can be retrieved in the IAU Transient Name Server.
