The SNAD team has employed their active anomaly detection pipeline to search for past supernovae in a few high-latitude fields
of the Zwicky Transient Facility DR — which mainly contains variable stars. As a result, 16 known supernovae were found and 21 supernova candidates were
discovered. The new discoveries are now published in Transient Name Server where they can be
scrutinized by the astronomical community.
You can find the complete list here.
Details on how the original pipeline was adapted to allow these finds are being described into a scientific paper which will be made public soon. Stay tuned!
