L. Khlat (ENS-Lyon), J. L. Prieto (UDP), S. Dong (KIAA-PKU) report/s a classification of object: SN 2018djd

Type: SN Ia
Redshift: 0.026385

Remarks: We obtained an optical low-resolution spectrum of supernovae candidates on UT 2018 July 14 with WFCCD mounted on the du Pont 2.5m telescope at Las Campanas Observatory. The spectrum of ASASSN-18pb/AT2018djd is that of a Type Ia-norm supernova before maximum light. SNID (Blondin & Tonry 2007) gives a best fit age of -2.3 days before maximum light and z=0.024 as the redshift, consistent with the host galaxy redshift.

The following Classification spectrum was provided:
