Can someone help me out? I'm looking for the distance (in parsecs or L.Y.) of the Soft Gamma Ray repeater 1806-20; designation SGR 1806-20, thought to be a extremely active magnetar which erupted massively on Dec. 27, 2004 with a greater luminosity than any transient event ever observed in our galaxy; estimated to be >10^44 ergs!!
Someone who has a link to a catalog of SGR's maybe; possible estimates of distance?
