The Avedisova star formation regions and the Wouterloot/Brand objects
This page lists the Avedisova star formation regions associated with the Wouterloot/Brand (WB89) objects. These are infrared sources in close proximity to one or more molecular clouds in the galactic plane between 85° to 280°. See the Wouterloot and Brand paper for more details. The region location is linked to a page summarising the data on the star formation region. The infrared source, the SIMBAD suggested type for this source, number of references in SIMBAD for the source, the kinematic distance estimate(s) for the nearby molecular clouds and the Wouterloot and Brand comments are all included.
SIMBAD cross reference and type information is not always accurate, so this information should be treated cautiously. It is best to read the bibliographic references for the object to get the latest and most accurate information.
