How to determine the distance to stars whose annual parallax cannot be measured?

It is necessary to determine the absolute magnitude from the spectral characteristics or the period of brightness variation (for Cepheids) and compare it with the measured apparent magnitude.

Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
