Type: SN II
Redshift: 0.0326

Remarks: An optical spectrum of SN 2019uxh, obtained on the night of 2019 November 20 with the ESO Very Large Telescope UT1 equipped with the FORS2 spectrograph and grism 300V, shows a blue continuum with prominent P-Cygni lines of hydrogen and helium superimposed. From the spectroscopic appearance and the photometric constraints, we estimate a phase about 2 weeks after explosion. Weak Na D absorption in the supernova rest frame suggests some extinction within the host galaxy.

The following Classification spectrum was provided:
