The Public ESO Spectroscopic Survey of Transient Objects (PESSTO) provides high-quality, time series optical and near-infrared spectroscopy of optical transients covering a broad range of luminosity, host metallicity and explosion mechanisms. The transient objects that PESSTO selects for full spectroscopic follow-up are now immediately and publicly announced on the survey web page.

This list of transients selected for follow-up informs users in the ESO community which targets that they can expect to see as full datasets in Phase 3 data releases. This list is now available, and is automatically updated in real time.
