In science:

The Orion A molecular cloud, at a heliocentric distance of 450 pc (Genzel & Stutzki 1989, it is worth to note that Menten et al. (2007) measure the parallax distance recently and give a value of 420 pc.), is one of the nearest active high mass star-forming region.
C2H, HC3N and HNC Observations in OMC-2/3
Of the methods for breaking the lens parameter degeneracy, the most promising and generally applicable method is to measure the lens parallax from simultaneous observations of a lensing event from the ground and a heliocentric satellite (Gould 1994).
Unique Determination of the Physical Parameters of Individual MACHOs from Astrometric Parallax Measurements
By simultaneously measuring the source star centroid shifts from a geocentric and an additional heliocentric satellite, one can determine the lens parallax without ambiguity.
Unique Determination of the Physical Parameters of Individual MACHOs from Astrometric Parallax Measurements
The first method is to measure the lens parallax by simultaneously observing a lensing event from the ground and a heliocentric satellite (Gould 1994, 1995).
Unique Determination of the Physical Parameters of Individual MACHOs from Astrometric Parallax Measurements
Of course, the proposed astrometric parallax method also requires two satellites; one geocentric and the other heliocentric satellite.
