Distances and kinematics of Gould Belt star-forming regions with Gaia DR2 results.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present an analysis of the astrometric results from the Gaia second data release (DR2) for young stellar objects (YSOs) in star-forming regions related to the Gould Belt (GB). These regions are Barnard 59, Lupus 1 to 4, Chamaeleon I and II, ε Chamaeleontis, the Cepheus flare, IC 5146, and Corona Australis. The mean distance to the YSOs in each region is consistent with earlier estimations, though a significant improvement in the final errors was obtained. The mean distances to the star-forming regions were used to fit an ellipsoid of size (358 ± 7) x(316 ± 13) x (70 ± 4) pc3, centered at (X0, Y0, Z0) = (-82 ± 15, 39 ± 7, -25 ± 4) pc, consistent with recently determined parameters of the GB. The mean proper motions were combined with radial velocities from the literature to obtain the three-dimensional motions of the star-forming regions, which are consistent with a general expansion of the GB. We estimate that this expansion is occurring at a velocity of 2.5 ± 0.1 km s–1. This is the first time that motions of YSOs have been used to investigate the kinematics of the GB. As an interesting side result, we also identified stars with large peculiar velocities.
