Source Group: adH0cc
We have obtained an optical spectrum of SN 2020acug, which shows it to be a young Type II supernova.

The adH0cc programme for an "accurate determination of H0 with core-collapse supernovae" reports the classification of the optical transient SN 2020acug. The target was supplied by the Zwicky Transient Facility ZTF (Kulkarni 2018, 2018ATel11266....1K). The observations were performed on the night of 2020 December 21 with the ESO Very Large Telescope UT1, equipped with the FORS2 spectrograph and grism 300V, covering a wavelength range from 3400 to 9600 Å at a resolution of 10 Å.

The phase was determined based on the ZTF light curve. The redshift was measured from narrow host galaxy H-alpha and [OIII] 5007 emission lines contaminating the object spectrum.12:14:14.163+09:47:46.04SN II0.045
