9530 ly for WR 102
Notes:
WR 102 is a star of the very rare spectral class WO, of which only nine are known so far. It belongs to the hottest known stars with a surface temperature of about 200 000 Kelvin. The surrounding nebula G2.4+1.4 probably does not originate from the WR star, but is formed by photo-ionization.
