J. Mulchaey (Carnegie), M. M. Kasliwal (Carnegie), I. Arcavi
(Weizmann), E. Bellm (Caltech) and D. Kelson (Carnegie) report on
behalf of a larger collaboration:

We obtained a high SNR low-resolution spectrum of iPTF13bxl
(GCN#14967) with IMACS on the 6.5m Magellan telescope at Las Campanas
on 2013 July 3.97 covering 3800A-9500A.  We also obtained another
spectrum with the DBSP spectrograph on the 5m Hale telescope at
Palomar at July 4.16. The spectra show a blue continuum with weak
H-alpha and O III emission at z=0.145.
