Abstract

The HIPPARCOS satellite will produce positions, motions and parallaxes of celestial objects with previously unattained accuracy. This HIPPARCOS Instrumental System, however, will have an unknown solid body rotation with respect to an inertial reference frame. One aspect of our program of astrometric observations with the Hubble Space Telescope is to determine the rotation of the HIPPARCOS reference frame with respect to an extragalactic reference system.
