   [TGC97] (Tieftrunk+Gaume+Claussen+, 1997) Write:<<[TGC97] W3AaN>> N: 8+1 Object:(Rad)  (SIMBAD class: Radio = Radio Source) Stat:is completely incorporated in Simbad Note:Hypercompact radio continuum sources in W 3M and W 3C observed with the VLA.
Sources in W 3M form a cluster and are designated W3Ma to W3Mg, source W3d is double (d1 and d2). In W 3C, N=1 source W3Ca. These sources are also labeled following [WBN72] as [WBN72] W 3 IRS 5aN or [WBN72] W 3 IRS 4a, as W 3M is coincident with IRS 5 and W3C with IRS 4. in source:W 3 Ref:=1997A&A...318..931T byTIEFTRUNK A.R. , GAUME R.A., CLAUSSEN M.J., WILSON T.L., JOHNSTON K.J.
