Benjamin J. Shappee (Carnegie Observatories), J. L. Prieto (Diego Portales; MAS), J. Rich, B. Madore (Carnegie Ob) report/s a classification of object: SN 2016fob

Type: SN Ia
Redshift: 0.024

Remarks: We report an optical spectrum (range 370-920 nm) of ASASSN-16jq/AT2016fob obtained on UT 2016 Sep. 1.4 with the du Pont 2.5-m telescope (+ WFCCD) at Las Campanas Observatory. We performed a cross-correlation with a library of supernova spectra using the "Supernova Identification" code (SNID; Blondin and Tonry 2007, Ap.J. 666, 1024). The spectrum of ASASSN-16jq is that of a normal Type Ia at -1 days before maximum light. The SNID redshift from the SN features is 0.024 +/- 0.005.

The following Classification spectrum was provided:
