YSO candidates associated with 63 local clouds and distances to these clouds obtained based on YSO parallaxes
I present a catalog of distances to 63 molecular clouds located within ~2.5 kpc of the Sun. The cloud distances are derived based on utilizing the Gaia DR3 parallaxes of the young stellar objects (YSOs). By identifying AllWISE YSO candidates (YSOCs) with infrared excesses and combining them with published YSOC catalogs, I compile an all-sky YSOC sample that is devoid of a significant proportion of contaminants. Using Gaia DR3 astrometric measurements, I associate over 3000 YSOCs with 63 local clouds and obtain the average distance to each cloud by fitting the YSOC parallax distribution within the cloud. Here I present the table of cloud distance, table of all-sky YSOCs, and the table of YSOCs associated with local clouds.
