The Italian Supernovae Search Project (ISSP) is the new collaboration between the main four rItalian groups operating in the extragalactic supernova research field: the CROSS of Col Drusciè Observatory - Cortina d'Ampezzo (Belluno), the MOSS of Montarrenti Observatory (Siena), the MASACAS of Monte Agliale Observatory (Lucca) and the MVSS of Montecatini Val di Cecina Observatory (Pisa).

The collaboration aims to create a joint supernova research program that allows to monitor many stellar field as frequently as possible searching for supernova explosions.

The Asiago Transient Classification Program (Tomasella et al. 2014, AN, 335, 841) reports the spectroscopic observation of PSN J14002117+3854517 in NGC 5406. The observation was performed with the Asiago 1.82m Copernico Telescope (+AFOSC; range 340-820 nm; resolution 1.4 nm), equipped with the CCD Andor IKON L936.

 
Name                   | Date (UT)    |  z         |  Type  | Phase      | 
PSN J14002117+3854517  | 20150219.07  |  0.01735   |  SN II | ~ 2 weeks  | 

The spectrum shows a relatively blue continuum, dominated by the Balmer lines with P-Cygni profiles typical of type II SNe about two weeks after explosion. From the H-alpha minimum an expansion velocity of about 5600 km/s is deduced, once the host galaxy redshift has been taken into account (z=0.01735, RC3, via NED)

Classification was done with GELATO (Harutyunyan et al. 2008, A&A, 488, 383) and SNID (Blondin and Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024). The Asiago classification spectra are posted at the website http://sngroup.oapd.inaf.it.

The Asiago Transient Classification Program (Tomasella et al. 2014, AN, 335, 841) reports the spectroscopic classification of MASTER OT J062509.46+283255.1 (ATel #6833).

The observations were performed with the Asiago 1.82 m Copernico Telescope (+AFOSC; range 340-820 nm; resolution 1.2 nm), equipped with a new CCD (Andor IKON L936) with higher response both in the UV and in the NIR.
