Abstract (from CDS):

We present an analysis of the caustic-crossing binary microlensing event OGLE-2017-BLG-0039. Thanks to the very long duration of the event, with a time scale tE ∼ 130 days, the microlens parallax is measured precisely despite its low value of πE∼0.06. Analysis of the well-resolved caustic crossings during the source star's entrance and exit of the caustic yields an angular Einstein radius of θE∼0.6 mas. The measured πE and θE indicate that the lens is a binary composed of two stars with masses ∼1.0M and ∼0.15 M, and is located at a distance of ∼6 kpc. From the color and brightness of the lens estimated from its determined mass and distance, it is expected that ∼2/3 of the I-band blended flux comes from the lens. Therefore, the event is a rare case of a bright lens event for which high-resolution follow-up observations can confirm its nature.
