The distance of Sakurai's Object.

KIMESWENGER S. and KERBER F.

Abstract (from CDS):

Sakurai's Object seems to be undergoing a very late Helium-flash, making it a unique observational event with very important implications for our understanding of late stellar evolution. We present the first individual distance determination: using the extinction method we have derived a distance of 1.1kpc for the planetary nebula surrounding the star. This accurate distance will be a crucial step forward in our efforts to understand the nature and the evolution of Sakurai's Object.
