Parsecs to the Orion Nebula Cluster from Very Long Baseline Array Observations

Abstract

We determine the parallax and proper motion of the flaring, non-thermal radio star GMR A, a member of the Orion Nebula Cluster, using Very Long Baseline Array observations. Based on the parallax, we measure a distance of 389 −21 parsecs to the source. Our measurement places the Orion Nebula Cluster considerably closer than the canonical distance of 480 ± 80… (More)
