The Catalina Real-time Transient Survey (CRTS) has spectroscopically characterized SNe in faint host galaxies using the 5.1-m Palomar Hale telescope (+DBSP). Observations were primarily taken on April 1st UT with the following results:

   Notes:   Host galaxy absolute magnitudes are derived from host apparent magnitudes and SNe redshifts.   CSS090216:100910+075434 is SN 2009bx (Drake et al. 2009a) CBET#1744.   CSS090319:142155+260102 was confirmed by Moskvitin et al. (2009; private communication).   2009cb (Drake et al. 2009b) CBET#1752 was confirmed by PTF ATEL#2005.   2009cy was confirmed by Catelan et al. (2009)  CBET#1755.   2009bp was confirmed by Silverman et al. (2009) CBET#1747.   2009ar was confirmed by Mahabal et al. (2009) CBET#1713.   Based on the updated CRTS lightcurve, CSS090319:094627-130816 (ATEL#1980) is not a supernova.
