ADC_Keywords: Molecular clouds ; Radio sources ; Parallaxes, trigonometric ; Stars, distances ; Proper motions Keywords: astrometry; ISM: individual objects: Orion Molecular Clouds; parallaxes; radiation mechanisms: nonthermal; stars: kinematics and dynamics Abstract: We present the results of the Gould's Belt Distances Survey of young star-forming regions toward the Orion Molecular Cloud Complex. We detected 36 young stellar objects (YSOs) with the Very Large Baseline Array, 27 of which have been observed in at least three epochs over the course of two years. At least half of these YSOs belong to multiple systems. We obtained parallax and proper motions toward these stars to study the structure and kinematics of the Complex. We measured a distance of 388±5pc toward the Orion Nebula Cluster, 428±10pc toward the southern portion L1641, 388±10pc toward NGC 2068, and roughly ∼420pc toward NGC 2024. Finally, we observed a strong degree of plasma radio scattering toward λ Ori. Description: The observations presented in this paper were made with the National Radio Astronomy Observatory's Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) at 5GHz with a 256MHz bandwidth (spanning the range of 4.852-5.076GHz). They span a period of two years from 2014 to 2016 March. File Summary:
