S. Valenti, D. Sand, L. Tartaglia, G. Hosseinzadeh, I. Arcavi, D. A. Howell, C. McCully report/s a classification of object: SN 2017fgc

Type: SN Ia
Redshift: 0.008

Remarks: Using SNID (Blondin & Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024), we find a good fit to the normal Type Ia SN 2002bo 13 days before maximum light at redshift z=-0.001. This negative redshift from SNID, compared to the host galaxy redshift of z=0.008 (Cappellari et al. 2011, MNRAS, 413, 813), likely indicates that the supernova is even younger than -13 days.

The following Classification spectrum was provided:
