Expert Answer:

Gross errors are undetected mistakes that cause a measurement to be very much farther from the mean measurement than other measurements.

The indirect methods of distance measurement.

Spectroscopic method: By measuring the Doppler shift in the spectrum of light received from a distant star, we can infer the distance of the star and it's recessional velocity from earth.

Kepler's Method: By using the Kepler's third law, we can measure the distance of a planet. We have to record it's time period to use this method, against a known time period and distance data for a planet.
