Abstract (from CDS):

We report a spectroscopic identification of two new changing-look active galactic nuclei (CL-AGNs): SDSS J104705.16+544405.8 and SDSS J120447.91+170256.8, both with a "turn-off" type transition from type-1 to type-1.8/1.9. The identification is arrived at through a follow-up spectroscopic observation of the five CL-AGNs candidates that are extracted from the sample recently released in Macleod et al. The candidates are extracted by the authors from the Sloan Digit Sky Survey Data Release 7, and are spectroscopically confirmed quasars with large amplitude variability. By compiling a sample of 26 previously identified CL-AGNs, we confirm the claim by Macleod et al. that CL-AGNs tend to be biased against a low Eddington ratio, and identify an overlap between the CL-AGNs at their dim state and the so-called intermediate-type AGNs. The overlap implies that there two populations of the intermediate-type AGNs with different origins. One is due to the torus orientation effect, and the other to the intrinsic change of the accretion rate of the central supermassive black holes.
