Confirmed as type IIP

Forums Spectroscopy Bright possible supernova in NGC6946 Confirmed as type IIP

I was clouded out by the time it got dark enough/cleared the tree line so no spectrum from here. The confirming spectrum (type IIP) on TNS is fairly featureless with a blue continuum at the moment and a small hump at H alpha.

This should grow into a nice strong P Cygni line profile over the next couple of weeks though.
