Cygnus OB association
âhazeš-e OB Mâkiyân
Fr.: association OB Cygne
One of nine → OB associations located in the Cygnus → constellation. The central association, → Cygnus OB2, is the most famous and the youngest of the Cygnus region. (L. Mahy et al. 2013, astro-ph/1301.0500 and references therein).
Fr.: association OB
A loosely bound grouping of O and B stars that typically stretches up to several hundred → light-years and may contain between a dozen and several hundred → O stars and → B stars. The members of an OB association are young and of roughly the same age. OB associations dissipate in a few tens of millions of years.
O and B, from spectral types; → association.
âhazeš-e Šekârgar, ~ Orion
Fr.: association d'Orion
Fr.: association R
A → stellar association containing a number of → reflection nebulae. The stars are of low or intermediate mass and young, less than a million years old. They are still surrounded by patches of dust that reflect and absorb light from the interstellar cloud in which they formed. This type of association was first suggested by Sidney van den Bergh (1966, AJ 71, 900).
Fr.: Association Scorpion-Centaure
The nearest OB association to the Sun, lying about 470 light-years away in the Gould Belt. It contains several hundred stars, mostly of type B, including Shaula, Lesath, and Antares.
Fr.: association stellaire
1) A large, loose grouping of 10 to 1000 stars that are of similar spectral type and
share a common origin. The members move together
through space, but have become gravitationally → unbound.
Stellar associations are primarily identified by their common
movement vectors and ages.
→ OB association;
→ T association;
→ R association.
The concept of stellar association was first introduced by Viktor A. Ambartsumian (1908-1996), Armenian astrophysicist (1947, Stellar Evolution and Astrophysics, Armenian Acad. of Sci.; German translation, Abhandl. Sowjetischen Astron. Ser. 1. 33, 1951). → stellar; → association.
Fr.: association T
T, letter of alphabet; → association.
TW Hydrae association
âhazeš-e TW Hudrâ
Fr.: Association TW Hydrae
A young (≤ 100 million years) association of stars (abbreviated TWA) with at least 27 members, from → intermediate mass stars to planetary mass objects. Five of them, including → TW Hydrae, display signatures of → T Tauri stars. TWA is the first moving group of young nearby (≤ 100 → paesecs) stars to be identified.
