SDSS-II SN Catalogs, Photometry, & Spectra

This page contains links to the complete set SDSS-II SN detections, photometry, and spectra as described in the SDSS SN data release paper (Sako et al., subbmitted to ApJS).

Table of Candidates

The table of candidates contains candidate identication information, light curve fits, host galaxy identification and properties, and other miscellaneous parameters.

Last updated January 6, 2015. See here for list of updates.

Table of Candidates (fixed format)
The fixed format table is identical to the catalog published as electronic version of Table 1 in the journal article.

Table of Candidates (free format)
The free format file is space delimited with the string "\N" marking fields where the data is not relevant or not available.


Light curve data is released in the format described in Holtzman, J.A., et al. 2008, AJ, 136, 2306.
