To complement our previous discovery of the young snake-like structure in the solar neighborhood and reveal the structure’s full extent, we build two samples of stars within the Snake and its surrounding territory from Gaia EDR3. With the friends-of-friends algorithm, we identify 2694 and 9615 Snake member candidates from the two samples. Thirteen open clusters are embedded in these member candidates. By combining the spectroscopic data from multiple surveys, we investigate the comprehensive… 

3D Morphology of Open Clusters in the Solar Neighborhood with Gaia EDR 3. II. Hierarchical Star Formation Revealed by Spatial and Kinematic Substructures

We identify members of 65 open clusters in the solar neighborhood using the machine-learning algorithm StarGO based on Gaia EDR3 data. After adding members of 20 clusters from previous studies we

Disconnecting the Dots: Re-examining the Nature of Stellar “Strings” in the Milky Way

Recent analyses of Gaia data have resulted in the identification of new stellar structures, including a new class of extended stellar filaments called stellar “strings,” first proposed by Kounkel &



The APOGEE-2 Survey of the Orion Star-forming Complex. II. Six-dimensional Structure

We present an analysis of spectroscopic and astrometric data from APOGEE-2 and Gaia DR2 to identify structures toward the Orion Complex. By applying a hierarchical clustering algorithm to the
