Craig Pellegrino, Saurabh W. Jha, Jamison Burke, Daichi Hiramatsu, D. Andrew Howell, Curtis McCully, Estefania Padilla Gonzalez report/s a classification of object: SN 2020tkp

Type: SN Ia
Redshift: 0.035

Remarks: Using SNID (Blondin & Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024) we find best fits to young SNe Ia, including SN 2004dt about a week before maximum. Assuming a redshift of z = 0.035 from the host hydrogen lines in the spectrum, we measure a speed of 16,500 km/s for both the Si II 6355 line and the Ca II NIR triplet. Further follow up is encouraged.

The following Classification spectrum was provided:
