V883 Orionis is a protostar in the constellation of Orion. It is associated with IC 430 (Haro 13A), a peculiar Hα object surveyed by Guillermo Haro in 1952.[3] It is located about 1350 light years (414 parsecs) away,[2] and is associated with the Orion Nebula.[4]

V883 Orionis, like most protostars, is surrounded by a circumstellar disc of dust. The dust has a water snow line, a certain distance where the stellar irradiance from the star is low enough that water can freeze to snow. The water snow line was directly imaged by ALMA, when a stellar outburst increased the amount of insolation and pushed the line out farther.[2]
