SIMBAD query result

Gaia DR2: For now, Gaia DR2 data are not in SIMBAD, it is available in Vizier. The CDS will perform a cross-identification of Gaia DR2 with the astronomical objects in the SIMBAD bibliographic database. This will be done with very strict criteria in order to avoid erroneous cross-identifications. Especially, only the 6.5 milllions objects with subarseconds coordinates will be searched in Gaia DR2. Expected to be ready on June 30, 2018.
