A team of astronomers combed through data from the Hubble Space Telescope and found a star that appears to have survived (after a fashion) a weak supernova. This type of weak supernova is called a Type Iax, not to be confused with its brighter brethren, which are supernovas called Type Ia. The zombie-producing supernova has been named "SN 2012Z." It sits about 110 million light-years away from Earth.
