hip 1 3.45 to 4.55 to 7.19 parallax ?!

:(

http://simbad.u-strasbg.fr/simbad/sim-b ... 20%208.961

parallax => 3.54 => I/239/hip_main => The Hipparcos and Tycho Catalogues (ESA 1997)

parallax => 4.55 => I/311/hip2 => Hipparcos, the New Reduction (van Leeuwen, 2007)

parallax => 7.19 => I/337/tgas => Gaia DR1 (Gaia Collaboration, 2016)

DAFUQ ! parallax ?! :shock:

facepalm !

Also bear in mind the uncertainties.

XHIP gives 4.55±1.33 mas
TGAS gives 7.19±0.68 mas

In units of the error on the XHIP parallax, this is a 2σ difference. 2σ differences should occur often enough that several thousand stars in the XHIP catalogue likely have true parallaxes outside the 2σ range.
