We obtained an optical spectrum of the faint transient AT2019wxt (PS19hgw; GCN 26485, AstroNote 2019-154) with the SPRAT instrument on the Liverpool Telescope. The low S/N spectrum is featureless and shows a blue continuum, similar to the HCT (Dutta et al., GCN 26490) and NOT (Izzo et al., GCN 26491) spectra.
Further observations are planned.
